Room Hire @ Burnside Bowls

Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks again for the weekend! The boys absolutely loved it and you were a great host.
Hope we weren't too much trouble, thanks for everything!



Thank you again for such a wonderful time on Saturday. Everyone had a great time and we are talking about making it an
annual event :)



Just want to email you and the Burnside club to say a massive thank to everyone who helped us play bowls on Saturday
afternoon. Everyone in the hens party really enjoyed it and said how awesome you all where for helping us and giving us a few
tips along the way.

There will definitely be a few of us back again to play over summer I would say.

Kind regards
Rebecca Kingsford


We all had a lovely day at your club and outside of the office.
Thank you for everything!
Kind regards,

Hi ,
We had a great night on Saturday thank you very much for helping us to have such an awesome engagement party :-)
Thank you again... also to Terry and Leo (BBC Barmen) Thank you too. They were fantastic.
Kind regards Jaimee & Ian :-)

Thanks, it was great to meet you and I look forward to working with you in the future.
It is always a pleasure to have our seminars at the bowling club, you are all so friendly and welcoming.

Christine & I wanted to thank you & the Club, on behalf of our EOLC Group, for providing such a great and comfortable venue
for our meeting yesterday.
We really did appreciate everything you did to make things run smoothly and for being such a helpful, competent & reassuring
person to deal with!
We wish you all the best for the World Championships
We hope to come again.

Thanks for allowing us coaches to use the Board room on Saturday afternoon that all worked well.
Thank you for the work that you do for Burnside as Manager. I have often noticed that you go the "extra mile" to ensure that all
hirers get what they expect at the venue.
Nothing surprises me really as generally folk in paid positions get questioned. I have noticed how much value you add to our
club. You can be proud that you do a good job and  help to make Burnside the professional club that it is.
My thanks for your contribution.
Regards Cushla

We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and have been recommending it to anyone that will listen!
You were all excellent hosts and made the evening that much better.

Thank you to you and your committee – the venue was perfect for us and yes we had a very successful event.  And I am very
pleased that you were happy with how we left the venue – that was a slight worry for us
Thank you again!
Warm regards,

Thanks for helping organise last night - it was considered a great success by those present although we only had about 23 -
far fewer than we'd hoped.  We hope to repeat this next year  now our mailing list has been updated.
Kind Regards

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. And our ladies Locker room is also available for hire for similar small meetings/gatherings.
This room is on the ground floor.

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
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.

Inspection is invited. Ring
Alan (027 232 1723) or contact him by email  to
arrange a suitable time.
