Bowls is for anyone and everyone

It’s an easy and fun game for all levels of players to participate in and it’s great for the whole family or a regular get-together with a group of friends!

Our focus is to enable all members to strive to bowl at the level they want to, whether social or competitively and we provide coaching and development sessions to enable this to occur.

New members are welcome, both experienced & new bowlers and free tuition is provided.

About Our Club

Modderfontein Bowls Club is situated in Casino Road, Modderfontein which is an historic small town on the East Rand of Gauteng, South Africa.

Modderfontein was founded in 1894 (8 years after Johannesburg) when ZAR President Paul Kruger decided that the Republic needed a dynamite factory to supply the burgeoning gold mining industry. It was designed as the largest commercial explosives factory in the world, a distinction it enjoyed up until the mid 1990s.

We are a “small friendly Club” and our objective is to maintain our facilities in excellent condition to enable our members to enjoy both social and competitive bowls together with a wide range of social activities.  Our goal is to be a “vibrant, growing and successful Club”.

We have two greens, both of which has been refurbished over recent years and are in top condition. Modderfontein currently fields two Mens and one Ladies Premier League teams and a number of other teams playing in lower leagues. 

Social bowls are organised on Tuesday and Thursday mornings as well as Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. Special occasion days are also regularly organized. In addition members can bowl on other days / times.
