As of Saturday, May 22nd, Lawn bowling is permitted. Physical distancing and the same COVID-19 procedures as last summer will be required while playing. 

RCYC's Lawn Bowling Toronto Section President is Joan Taschuk and the Games Director is Linda Carter.

Join us on the Island green from mid-May to October. Games are played Mondays at 10:45 am, Wednesdays at 6:15 pm, Thursdays at 4:15 pm, and Saturdays at 1:15 pm. Bowlers compete in tournaments at home and at other clubs. We entertain visitors on and off the green. We provide bowls and support for bowling parties. Come out anytime and give the game a try. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm. Flat-soled shoes are required.

From October to May, don your whites and join in a game of Short Mat Bowling in the Sports Hall at the City Clubhouse.

Our return to the Island is Pat Your Bowls Day, a Saturday in early May. The playing season starts mid-May. Playing ends officially with the Last Bowl Blast on the Saturday of the Last Mast Blast.

The opening luncheon is on the Island on a Tuesday in May. The closing luncheon and Annual General Meeting is at the City Club on a Thursday in mid-October.
