Eighteen ladies attended a special meeting on the verandah of the HDBC on Thursday 2 April 1959 for the purpose of forming the Constitution of the Hills District Women's Bowlling Club.  The election of Office Bearers and Management Committee took place at the inaugural Meeting of The Hills District Women's Bowling Club on 17 April 1959.  

Present at the inaugural meeting were:  R Farrell, E O'Brien, B Savage, T Kennedy, M Brown, R Templeton, C Ackling, R Hunter, D Smith, D Broomfield and T Maher.  Apologies were received from B Crump, E Pike and E Pearson.

It was agreed that the club colours would be red and green and the badge of the men's club would be worn by the women.
