Oh What A Week @ The Hive!

Premier Ladies Team 2018.jpg

How exciting can it get?

Tuesday – First and foremost we had our Ladies Premier Team sting Clayton and get through to the grand final. Never thought that the game of bowls could be so exciting. At the end of a days play, the outcome hinged on the last few bowls of Lyn’s rink with both Lyn and Karen (Dusty) Brennan putting down crackers resulting in a 68/61 victory. Wonderful team effort by everyone including the supporters. The grand final is yours. Go for it. YOU CAN DO IT! Bring home the honey.

Thursday – we had Girls On The Green with six new ladies enjoying their introduction to bowls together with a return visit from 8 of the Mambourin ladies. Most of us take so much from granted. It is mind blowing to see the pleasure that these impaired ladies have derived from being able to get onto the green and participate in a sport using our Junior Jack Attack kit. Several of these ladies had never participated in any sport previously which attests to the fact that our sport is suitable for all ages, abilities and cultures. Win/Win.

Friday – we had around 30 mums and bubs at Bowling With Babies. What a hoot to see so much young blood on the greens. Whoever would have thought? And they love it and would like to continue post the pilot program. Win/Win.

And top it off we had 50+ on the greens for Friday Night @ The Hive. Our message is getting out there. We are a community club open to our diverse community. Our doors are open. Not only a potential source for new bowlers but a positive effect on club revenue not only for bowling but increased bar and raffle takings. Win/Win.

Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising that the club can get so it is our hope that every visitor goes away with a positive image of our club. It is up to each of us to ensure that visitors are made feel welcome and that we offer a hand of friendship to new faces arriving at the club.

Over the past few weeks our club has featured on the Bowls Victoria and WyndhamCity Twitter sites and received likes from Bowls Victoria, Bowls Australia and bowls clubs near and as far away as the UK which is great exposure “for the little bowls club hidden in the park at the end of the main street”.

Let’s keep the bowls rolling. Each and every member has a role to play.

Jazz @ The Hive – 17/3/18

The Slipdixies are a unique group of musicians who are inspired by the early jazz and blues music of the twenties and thirties from New Orleans. They create the sounds of early New Orleans music with a mild modern twist. Their repertoire ranges from hot driving to laid back blues.  They cook up a gumbo of popular favourites and forgotten treasures.

Join us @ The Hive for a foot-tapping night of fun.

Please contact Edith @ Werribee Jazz Club on 0410 302 340 to grab your spot.

BOWLING WITH BABIES

Bowling With Babies is Happening – Fridays 23 February, 2,9 & 16 March from 1030-1200.

Bowls Victoria in partnership with VicHealth and thanks to funding from the Active Women and Girls for Health and Wellbeing program launched an exciting new project this season – Mums on the Green. Our first program under that umbrella is Bowling with Babies.

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

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.

The program has been an immediate success with nearly 100 mums and bubs taking part across three weeks at four of our member clubs.

Attend as many sessions as you like!   In fact, new bowlers are welcome @ The Hive at any time!  We have a great facility located along the picturesque banks of the Werribee River.

Don’t miss out.  Book your spot via   https://bowlsvictoria.wufoo.com/forms/z19m1ra6173tv6j/
