The Club's History
Founded on November 30, 1938

The Pacific Indoor Bowls Club is the club's official name and generally shortened to PIBC. Bowls is a shortened name for "lawn bowling". 

 

It began in 1938 in a depression-era facility, located on the corner of 19th Ave and Main St, and constructed for under $15,000 thanks to community support.

The club was popular right from the start. It was THE place to practice and play competitively all fall and winter. 

The original facility closed its doors in 2001 after 63 years as home to PIBC. The club’s devoted membership, over a period of 20 years, planned for the construction of a new facility.

In September 2005, PIBC moved into its present location, the Millennium Sport Facility off on Clancy Loranger Way between Main and Cambie. The new space is equipped with all the amenities expected of a world-class facility. It’s perfect for everyone, from a lawn bowling novice to the many club members who have represented Canada internationally. PIBC has fun leagues and events for less competitive players and competitive leagues for the die-hard bowlers.

The club is member-run; directed by an all volunteer executive board. PIBC is a member of Bowls BC, the provincial body of Bowls Canada Boulingrin which, in turn, is a member of Scotland-based World Bowls.

 

Lawn bowling is played in over 55 countries worldwide - the sun never sets on lawn bowling because somewhere in the world, right now, people are playing.

It's a club with a rich history of producing champions; and the place for aspiring champions!
