Welcome to Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club, Melbourne’s friendly, family club.

Whether you're interested in barefoot bowls with friends, a venue for a birthday or corporate bowls day, relaxed mid-week competition or Saturday pennant, Flem-Ken can help.

The club is pokies-free and has a variety of spaces inside and out.

We regularly host everything from casual get-togethers to parties for up to 200 people, and are proud to have the most interesting and extensive beer list of any bowling club in the Southern Hemisphere!

Flem-Ken has a brand-new synthetic green that allows bowls to be played all year round. In an exciting development for the club, lights are due to be installed over the green in time for the 2015-16 pennant season, which will allow bowls to be played into the evening.

Located on the junction of four of inner-Melbourne’s major roads, on the 57 tram line and close to Newmarket station, just three stops from the city, we’re easy to get to and from.
