We play outside—lawn bowling is summer’s best sport

Join Toronto Rainbowlers for LGBT lawn bowling on East York’s favourite greens. The games are rolling at Cosburn Park!

Is this your first time? (bowling)

Toronto Rainbowlers is a recreational league for lesbian, gay, bi, and transgender lawn bowlers. We welcome players of all stripes and skill levels, and you can join at any time during the bowling season.

Lawn bowls fun starts day 1

We teach you lawn bowling basics quickly so you can enjoy the sport while you learn. Even beginners can make great shots in every game.

Welcome to our friendly club

When you join Toronto Rainbowlers, you’ll  laugh, cheer, and chat on the greens—now safely distanced of course. And as soon as it’s safe, we’ll invite you to our neighbourhood pub after the game.

We know how to play safely

Physical distancing is easy outdoors, and Cosburn Park’s rigorous COVID protocols have been checked and approved by the City of Toronto. Lawn bowls is a safe sport.

Join us for a summer of fun on the greens

Our season has started (but you can join anytime). As we reopen, here’s what a typical season looks like:

If it’s Wednesday, we’re bowling
We play at 7 pm on Wednesday evenings, from mid-May through early September at Cosburn Park Lawn Bowling Club in East York. After the game, join us for a post-bowls drink on the patio at Sophie’s, the neighbourhood pub.
Special events
Along with our regular bowls games, we host events for new bowlers, a Pride Week event, and an end-of-season dinner. Rainbowlers members also play in-club and outside tournaments, and we’re always up for one of Cosburn’s holiday Monday events.
Who we are
Rainbowlers, The Toronto LGBT Lawn Bowling Society, is a recreational league for lesbian, gay, bi, and trans lawn bowlers. We welcome players of all stripes and skill levels, and you can join at any time during the bowling season.

Lawn bowling takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. I’ve met so many great people at Rainbowlers! Bradley H.

Wednesday is the evening I look most forward to, seeing my LBGTQ friends and fellow bowlers. It's a blast! Wendy D.
