History of Bowls Hong Kong

The game has been played in Hong Kong for well over a century. The history of bowls, Hong Kong, began when a group of Scotsman who lived in Kowloon formed the Kowloon Bowling Green Club in 1900. The very first club house was opened in 1905 by Hong Kong governor Sir Matthew Nathan.

Since then, bowls, Hong Kong, increased in popularity in the 1920s and 1930s, and the club (next to the Kowloon Cricket Club) had its own greens available year round. These were separate to the main playing field used for cricket and lawn tennis. In the Second World War the greens were used to grow vegetables, but these opened again at the end of 1946 and are still in use today.

The Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Association is an association of five divisions and 22 clubs. It was founded fifty years ago (March 1961) and a series of games and tournaments have been organised to commemorate its golden jubilee.

In the 1970’s bowls Hong Kong gained an influx of players, as many ex-pats settled here and popularity of the sport continued.

In fact, the Hong Kong International Bowls Classic, founded in 1981, is seen as one of the best outdoor bowls tournaments in the world. It attracts top players globally and includes a single and a pairs competition.

This tournament was originally a men’s event held annually in winter but has included a women’s competition since 2008. Hong Kong won the pairs title five times and Hong Kong’s singles winners have included George Souza Junior and Noel Kennedy winning in 1984 and 1994.

Among the top male bowls Hong Kong singles are Ken Chan, Jerry Ng and Raymond Ho. The top three women’s singles players are Winnie Wai, Mercredi Yeung and Joanna Nam (rankings relate to the three years between 2009 and 2011).
