Clothing Regulation


Where possible, clothing shall be whites or Club colours for events run under the control of the Match Committee or its representatives.

Club ‘colours’ means the approved Petone Central club shirt, jacket, and head wear. Trousers (including ¾ length pants), shorts or skirts may be white, navy blue or black.

Apparel logos are permitted provided they are a genuine part of the garment (e.g. Adidas stripes, Nike logo etc but not limited to).

Some events will be played in Mufti — please check the notice-board or Handbook programme.

Team Attire/Matching Wear


Teams selected to represent the Club in Interclub/Pennants shall wear the official attire/matching wear of the Petone Central Bowling Club. Please check with your team.

Centre and National Level

Teams must wear the same attire/matching clothing. Please check with your team.

Club Gradings

Some events on our programme require members to play in their graded positions.

Gradings will be reviewed at the sole discretion of the Match Committee at the commencement of each season.

This should allow every player (and team) a fair rating and equal opportunity. Please do not be offended if your grading changes (either up or down) – members can also play their part by advising a ‘voluntary change’ if they feel this would benefit their play.

Please note: Club Championships are NOT GRADED EVENTS.

About Us

Petone Central Bowling Club came into being in June 2008 as a result of the merger between two former Clubs — the Petone Bowling Club and the Central Bowling Club. Both Clubs were well established in the Petone area with the Petone Bowling Club being inaugurated in 1897 and the Central Bowling Club in 1917.
