In the spirit of an open and welcoming community, we strive to keep membership fees affordable and still maintain the club at high standards. To accomplish that, the club needs every member to give what they can: time, special skills, ideas and leadership.

Volunteering is the #1 Way to Enrich Your Club Membership

Our club is bowler-powered — run by the hard work and efforts of our members. We have no paid staff and committee chairs need volunteers to help with every aspect of maintaining the club facility and programs. Contact any committee chair listed in the front of your member roster to offer your help.

Volunteer coordinator, Amy Alesio, will contact members throughout the year to help match member’s interests and skills with things that need doing. Better yet, call her first! Amy is available at or 206-852-1989 or send her an email at volunteer@seattlebowls.org

These are some of the ways you can get involved. Every little bit helps!
