The Bowls Australia 2018-2022 Strategic Plan has been released and is accessible via https://assets.sportstg.com/assets/console/document/documents/16A4AD27-5056-BD3F-FE4442CBC17E61B1.pdf
The document certainly provides some interesting reading as to the way ahead for bowls in Australia.
The Vision Statement states “Our Vision is for all Australians to engage with bowls during their lifetime”.
Participation is now the key. Success is no longer measured purely on the numbers of pennant players at a club. It’s all about getting people through the gate for the first time and accepting that time restrictions and changes in society and family structures may no longer enable participants to commit to long term pennant competitions. Short form games and other options are being developed by the Bowls fraternity who recognise the need for change to get people onto the greens – be is social, community, pennant or barefoot bowls. The old saying that “if you don’t give it a go – you will never know” is so true.
Why not invite your family, friends, colleagues or mates to come down for a roll up? Bowls is the only game that can be played from womb to tomb! Enquiries for bowls or functions always welcome. Call The Hive on 9741 3229 to have a chat. We can tailor an event for your needs.
