Euston Bowls Club
The Euston Bowling Club was the forerunner to the establishment of the Euston Bowling and Recreation Club Ltd, now one of the best and most successful licensed clubs along the Murray River.
The Euston Club was established on a site which was the original location of the Euston Hotel, a popular ‘watering hole’ for the district’s farmers and workers. Both greens overlook the mighty Murray River and feature a new and improved sports lounge complete with full bar facilities, P.A system and plasma T.Vs. Lighting facilities are installed over the greens to allow for twilight/evening bowling. Come along for social bowls, book in for one on one coaching, or why not become a member to be eligible for pennant season. Here at the Euston bowling club, we offer two Fabulous greens, one being a synthetic carpet Green and the other a Tift dwarf grass green. Our synthetic green features a retractable shade Cover, perfect for those hot summer days!
There are both regular competitions and social bowling available for members and guests.

LOCAL IN THE WINNERS CIRCLE IN THE STAR STUDDED TRIPLES JUNE TOURNAMENT
The Euston Bowling Club hosted its big annual two day star studded triples tournament on 22 and 23 June with entries from far and wide, filling both greens to capacity.
Competition was strong with 6 teams on equal points going into the seventh and last game on Sunday afternoon. Bowlers were greeted each morning with a frost but the days were sunny and delightful.
The eventual winner was Butch Pollock’s team from Mildura Workers with 6 wins and 50 shots up, second was Frank Garden’s team from Essendon with 6 wins and 45 shots up, which included local Noel Johnson, third was Brian Richardson’s team from Swan Hill with 6 wins and 30 shots up, fourth was Adrian Barko’s team from Merbein with 6 wins and 21 shots up, fifth was Mick Marchment’s team from Warracknabeal with 5 wins and a draw.
President of the Euston Bowling Club, John Bond, thanked the 84 bowlers who made the trip to Euston and the sponsors for their support – Robinvale Amcal Pharmacy, Mildura Electrical, Mallee Meats, Trentham Estate Winery, Robinvale Dunlop Tyres & Battery Service and the Euston Club Resort for their terrific support – prize money in excess of $6,000 was spread across the five winners as well as other teams who scored well. A notable feature throughout the weekend was the fellowship, comradery and fun displayed by the bowlers, whilst also being very competitive in each game.
This tournament has become so well known and sought after that as soon as President John announced that entries were open for the 2020 tournament, it filled immediately with 28 entries.
