The initial four week program has now concluded however, further to recent discussions with the Bowls Victoria Female Participation Project Manager Neil Gray, the club will continue hosting the “Bowling With Babies” program that runs between 1000-1300 each Friday pending the outcome of the Bowls Victoria survey. The survey results will provide guidance on the frequency of the sessions going forward. We are also looking to have a barefoot bowls session including partners. Stay tuned!!!
This program will continue to allow new parents, mothers groups and mums to be to come together in a relaxed environment, share a cuppa and stories about their new bubs whilst enjoying some healthy, low impact exercise. We’ll be there to provide some basics and get you onto the green to have some fun. And even if it rains, you can still enjoy each others company and the club facilities.
This initiative has been implemented to reduce social isolation and also as a first step to increasing female participation in our sport. Increased exposure may provide new bowlers – be it social, barefoot or pennant but will also allow members of the public to see what facilities our club has to offer for possible event hire. It’s a Win/Win all round.
We trust that all members and the community will support this fantastic initiative. You are welcome to come to one or all of the sessions. It’s up to you.
