Asquith Bowling & Recreation Club has it’s origins in 1950, initially to provide a venue for the thriving sport of lawn bowls. Today our Club continues to fulfill that same service, whilst providing a family friendly atmosphere for all members and their guests, and encouraging and supporting a range of amateur sports and community groups.
The Asquith Progress Association was integral to the development of the first stages of what is today a thriving club, strongly supporting the local community. Our Club is located on a site that was initially part of an orchard, then used as a pottery works, and also served as a camp for displaced migrants after WWII. The site was purchased by Hornsby Shire Council in 1950, and ultimately by Asquith Bowling & Recreation Club in 1998.
Our club has received industry and government acknowledgement of the role we play in the support of our local community and in the support of local amateur sport.
