Bowling With Babies!

Bowling with Babies

Thinking outside of the square. What an interesting concept!

Bowls Victoria in partnership with VicHealth and thanks to funding from the Active Women and Girls for Health and Wellbeing program have an exciting new project starting this season – Bowling with Babies.

Bowling with Babies is a participation program designed for and exclusive to new and expecting mums of all skill levels.

Women’s sport in Victoria received a huge boost at the launch, with VicHealth announcing $6.7 million in funding to 19 sporting organisations including Bowls Victoria to get more Victorian women and girls healthy and active over the next three years.

Bowling with Babies had a successful pilot launch at Lilydale Bowls Club in September with 11 mums and bubs taking part.

Bowling with Babies provides a safe, comfortable environment for new mums to get out of the house, meet other mums, enjoy a gentle game of bowls and coffee. The family friendly environment of bowls clubs is a perfect location for a non-competitive physical activity specifically designed to fit the needs of new mums.

Seniors Event – Try Bowls/Concert – What a fab day!

The coming together of cultures.  We welcomed Wyndham Councillors Heather Marcus and Peter Maynard who spoke of the opportunities available to seniors within the Wyndham Community.  Our friends from the Wyndham Happy Life joined us to celebrate our lives and how fortunate we are.  After a cuppa and chat, visitors adjourned to the green where they were introduced to the game of lawn bowls in a fun social environment.  Whilst there was lots of fun and laughter the competitive edge of several visitors shone through!  Potential bowlers of the future.

After a light lunch we enjoyed the wonderful entertainment provided by the Wyndham Happy Life group in the form of song, dance and Tai Chi.  A fab day was had by all and the group  is returning next month which we hope will the start of a long and mutually beneficial friendship between our groups.
