Steve O'Brien, Capel Bowls Club Inc. on 0412 439 436.

Capel Bowls Club has introduced a Western Australian first with a new game of lawn bowls to be played during hot summer nights. Special UV lighting or black light is assembled along two bowling rinks and lawn bowls are painted with glow paint in a variety of colours.

When most other general lighting is switched off and the UV lights are illuminated the coloured bowls glow in the dark making a light show when rolled down the rink.

Capel Bowls Club sees this new initiative to be ideal for young families, friends and party groups on summer nights. Glow Bowls will commence on Thursday January 16 and run every week to the end of March 2020. Playing time is from 7.45pm to 9pm.

This is low cost entertainment and a great social outing for a variety of ages on summer’s nights.

Glow Bowls will cater for teams of 4-6 people playing against teams of similar size. In all 24 players can play when the two rinks are used and this can be stretched with larger numbers when game durations are shortened.

Enquiries and bookings can be made to Steve O'Brien, Capel Bowls Club on 0412 439 436.

Press Release

Rising Star Wins Prestigious Bowls Title

A rising new star has emerged at the Capel Bowls Club after the Ladies Singles Championships sponsored by Iluka Resources was played on Thursday 23rd January 2020.

Donna Krepp who has only been playing bowls for four years took out the championship in a hard fought contest with former captain, Bev Mckenna. She won 25 points to 23.

To get through to the final Donna had to negotiate through a strong field of contenders including former State bowler, Bev Scott who has won the Capel championship numerous times.

The singles championship is a gruelling contest with the first to score 21 points against an opponent in the knockout rounds and 25 points in the final. One of the several games Donna played went for over 2 hours.

Capel ladies first division team has won the South West League pennant title fifteen times out of the last twenty years. Donna was part of last year’s premiership team and played as a lead.

Prior to taking up bowls Donna was a handy hockey player.

Kylie Kammann won the Plate over Lorraine Pell which was also a hard fought contest.

Capel Ladies Captain, Joy O’Brien said it has been wonderful to see the development of Donna since joining the Club. She has worked hard on her game and has made an excellent transition from hockey to bowls. She is a worthy winner.

Friday night the fun night!

Come and meet Jack!

and enjoy a fun game of bowls on Friday night starting at 5pm from Friday 29th September 2017 at the Capel Bowls Club, Goodwood Road Capel.

Who is Jack?

Jack is the sometimes elusive yellow ball that we all try and get close to. Jack is the essence of the game of bowls. When you roll your bowl from about 40 metres away Jack is the object you are aiming at. The closer you bowl to Jack the more likely you are to win the game.

All ages welcome.

No need to worry about bowls we can provide them. You can play barefoot or with flat sole shoes. Just come as you are. If you have children of the age of 10-12 and older then get them involved too. It's a great game for families, mums and dads, grandparents, in fact all ages. If you haven’t played before then don’t worry we can get you started.

It’s fun when you get the hang of it.

It’s fun when you get the hang of it. And if you got a set of bowls that have been sitting gathering dust or you are an experienced bowler passing through then come and join us. And after an enjoyable time on the greens you can relax with the rest of us and have a drink or just kick back and watch the footy. There’s even prizes you can win.
