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. And we’ll invite you to our neighbourhood pub after the game—where the fun continues.
Join us for a summer of fun on the greens
If it’s Wednesday, we’re bowling
PLUS On Monday evenings starting in July, we host an Aussie Pairs night for Rainbowlers and other Cosburn members. Meet the rest of the club in a fast-paced game that’s a great opportunity for bowlers to learn new skills.
Along with our regular bowls games, we host events for new bowlers, a Pride Week event, two great tournaments,and an end-of-season dinner. Rainbowlers members also play in other tournaments—at our club and others nearby— and we’re always up for one of Cosburn’s holiday Monday events.
Toronto Rainbowlers hosts Flip-Flop in early September, an invitational pairs tournament for LGBT lawn bowlers. This full-day event is the first—and only—LGBT lawn bowls tournament in North America.
You’ll find Toronto Rainbowlers at Cosburn Park Lawn Bowling Club. For more about our host club, visit cosburnbowls.ca
