​The Burnside Bowling Club is conveniently located, just 3 kilometres from Christchurch Airport and situated in picturesque and tranquil Burnside Park, the Burnside Bowling Clubs function facilities provide options to prospective hirers that similar sporting Clubs struggle to replicate.

At Burnside, located at 330 Avonhead Road, we can offer you four rooms, with internet access that will meet the needs of any group from 10 to 200 persons, with off-street parking for up to 100 cars.

The air-conditioned Dining Hall, (with its kitchen adjacent), can seat up to 200. (Tables are optional). It has a pull down screen with a projector, and an excellent Sound System. This room has been used as a Trades or Exhibition hall, for Garage sales, as an amphitheatre, for Funeral Services and mix and mingle evenings. Not to mention Fitness Classes, Indoor, Church Services, Bowling, Christenings, and Weddings. The Dining Hall has an excellent “break-out” area if required. Clearly the Dining Hall can be treated as a ‘blank canvas’ – if that is what you seek – or, alternatively we (or you) can set the hall up in whatever manner you wish. Pack down assistance is available.

Crockery and cutlery are available, as is Coffee and Tea making facilities should they be required, which is also the case in our upstairs Lounge. Catering through our professional Catering partners can be arranged.

The Lounge (accessed by a lift or by stairs) also has a kitchen adjacent, ideal for heating savouries and the like before serving. This air-conditioned and carpeted lounge can seat up to 160 persons at 24 round tables. Our lounge looks out over our three greens is a sun-trap and lovely and cosy during Winter especially. It can be used for similar occasions as the Dining Hall but with its splendid Sound System, Stage and Dance floor, not to mention the excellent Bar -and bar staff- three television screens, it is more akin to parties and celebrations, of all kinds. With the overhead projector and screen the Lounge also provides hirers with an ideal meeting and/or training venue.

A smaller ‘Executive Room’ adjacent to the lounge can also be hired out for small meetings or Card (or equivalent) groups that number no more than 20.

Of course at Burnside, (regarded by many as one of New Zealand’s leading Bowling Club), our main pursuit is providing Lawn Bowls to our members and to the Community. After the more serious competitive bowls have concluded for the day we welcome groups and business houses, schools and neighbours, to come and have a roll-up. Many business’s in the North West use our facilities and the superb greens we provide, for a fun evening that can involve a few drinks and a BBQ during or after the bowls. Business Houses (and Social Clubs) have quickly recognised this non-exertive activity as an excellent team building exercise for their employees and workmates.

Our rates are competitive and are subject to time, date, numbers, availability etc.

If the fore-going has appeal to you and sounds like a ‘fit’ for your event, we suggest you contact Alan Bryce to discuss your event or function and together we will ensure the Club provides you with a venue that exceeds your expectations.
