In 2011/12 the Clubs’ bowlers decided that they needed an identity and a poll was held among the members to come up with a name and a logo.
Names such as ‘Water Board Water Rats’, ‘Water Board Piranhas’ and ‘Water Board Wolves’ were bandied around, with “Water Board Wolves” being the most popular choice. Hence the Clubs’ teams play with a large wolf logo on their bowls shirts.

The Water Board Bowling Club has been trading for 45 years. Originally formed by Hunter District Water Board (Now Hunter Water) for the benefit of it's employees.
The original Clubhouse was a former Hunter District Water Board residence at Cardiff and was due for demolition. However someone at the time made a wise decision that it was cheaper to transport the building, than to demolish it.
Transported by truck to it’s present site and having undergone several renovations and extensions the Club is now open to the public to join. Either as a Bowling Member or a Social Member. Social Membership is just $8.00 per year and only $3.00 for Uni students.
Perched high on the hill in Compton Street at North Lambton with views towards Mayfield, the Water Board Bowling Club is a fabulous venue for private functions,
a beer on the balcony, good affordable quality food,
great raffles and of course bowls.
Having one synthetic bowling green and one grass green, the Club is known for it's hospitality and friendliness with many visiting bowlers commenting on the excellent playing surface.
The Club has Free Wi-Fi for your convenience.
