About Bowls Queensland Bowls Queensland is the peak body for the sport of lawn bowls in Queensland and northern New South Wales. As of July 2012 Bowls Queensland had 36 member districts, with 335 clubs and more than 40,000 individual bowling members. Bowls Queensland runs numerous state competitions, such as State Championships, Champion of Club Champions, District Sides Championships and State Pennant Finals. Queensland state teams also compete in national and interstate events at under-18, under-25, open and over-60 levels. One of Bowls Queensland’s main responsibilities is the development of the sport of lawn bowls. A team of three development officers visits every club in the state annually, putting in place various participation programs that are helping grow membership of the sport.

History Prior to 2004 the sport of bowls in Queensland was administered by two separate organisations: the Royal Queensland Bowls Association and the Queensland Ladies Bowling Association. These organisations amalgamated in 2004 to create one unified state body: Bowls Queensland. The RQBA acquired the extremely successful Queensland Bowler publication in 2002. The magazine was in its 25th year of uninterrupted publication at the time. In 2004 the Queensland Bowler became the official publication of Bowls Queensland.
