Bowls is a game for all ages. It has one of the highest participation rates for any sport in Australia and can be played year round by men and women of all ages. It is both interesting and challenging as well as enjoyable at a social or competitive level depending upon your interest.
Try before you decide
Before making a financial commitment to join the club we provide you with free coaching from one of our accredited coaches. The coaching will consist of four to six sessions of around an hour’s duration covering the basic fundamentals of delivering a bowl and playing the game of lawn bowls. Following these sessions you will have a good idea as to whether or not you wish to join our club and take up lawn bowls as a sport or pastime. The bowling equipment necessary for these sessions will be freely provided with the exception of bowling shoes. Initially, any flat-soled shoes are fine to wear on the greens.
Coaching & playing
Once you’ve joined the club the services of the club coaches continue to be available free of charge. All you need do is make an appointment with one of them for a mutually convenient time. Your coach will advise you when you are ready to play in an organised game. Most people reach this standard after just a few lessons.
Once you start playing organised games the coaches continue to be available upon request as you develop and improve your bowling skills and tactics. Advice on the purchase of bowls and clothing is also readily available from the coaches. Casual clothing is generally appropriate for social bowls; club uniform is worn in pennant competitions and championship finals.
