Our Board and Committees

Kohimarama Bowling Club simply wouldn’t be the club it is without the dedication of a group of members that volunteer their time, knowledge and talents.

Paul Elsmore – President

Ph: 021 162 4123 |  Email: paul@elsmoreonline.com

Paul started bowling in his teens with his father, both indoor and outdoor Bowls.  He was humbled to be elected the first male president of Kohi, which had been established 60 years ago as the Mission Bay Womens’ Bowling Club, and in 2013, reincorporated as KBC when Mission Bay Mens’ Bowling Club disbanded.

Paul has enjoyed a varied career. He started in Auckland as a carpentry apprentice which gave him the foundation to proceed in the building industry both in NZ and Australia.  Retirement finally called in 2008 after 26 years as CEO of the Simmonds Group, and family drew him back to NZ in 2013.Paul also has memberships with the Mangawhau, Hunters Hill (Sydney) and Remuera Bowling Clubs.
