Toronto Rainbowlers

Making Cosburn even more colourful

Cosburn Park Lawn Bowling Club is proud to host Toronto Rainbowlers, the city’s only lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lawn bowling society. Rainbowlers started in 2011, when a group of curlers in the Riverdale Gay Curling League decided they needed a complementary summer sport. At the time, Cosburn had no regular jitneys on Wednesday evenings, so that became the Rainbowlers regular LGBT bowling night.

In 2016, Toronto Rainbowlers launched Flip-Flop—a pairs tournament for LGBT lawn bowlers. It’s the first and, for now, the only LGBT lawn bowling tournament in North America.
