Tuesday mixed open social bowls has now kicked off with attendances of 28/30 over the past two weeks. Despite the weather, it’s great to see so many in attendance. The more the merrier. It’s always good to see new faces and make new friends.

Members from other clubs are most welcome.
Kick off time is 1000

Catering – BYO lunch and enjoy the club facilities.
Non-members $10 per session / Social members free!!!
It’s only $40 to become a social member for the full year so why not join?
To assist with logistics, please book your spot via the Werribee Bowls Club Facebook Page.
Note: 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.
Details of the initial program are available via http://www.bowlsvic.org.au/Get-Involved/Bowling-with-Babies
