The Club is pleased to annouce that a cover for Green 1 will be installed in 2019.
The cover will make it possible for members and casual bowlers to play throughout the year, sheltered from hot sun and rain. Lights under the covers will enable night bowls.
Bowls is a sport for all ages, and the covers are an essential part of the Club’s plan to offer more sporting options to Junior bowlers and schools in our community with programs like Jack Attack.

This project has been made possible by a $590,000 grant from the Australian Government, Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities under the Community Development Grant Programme.
Rob McPherson has volunteered to project manage this construction. Main construction will be off-site. Installation is expected to be completed by the middle of August 2019.
We thank all concerned in working on gaining funding and planning of this project, including the Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth, and Federal Member for Dickson Peter Dutton.
