BOWLS MONTH SET TO GET VICTORIA ROLLIN’
Bowls Month is a participation initiative promoted by Bowls Victoria that encourages bowls facilities around the state to offer various events to encourage participation and grow the game.
“Participation initiatives like these are vital for the growth of bowls to attract new blood to Clubs. Bowls Month is a great opportunity for the community to connect with their local Club, meet new people and get introduced to the game,” said Bowls Victoria’s Chief Executive Graeme Bridge.
Over the past two years, regular bowls participation has increased at an average rate of 3.6 per cent per year and is one of the fastest growing social sports in Victoria.
“New flexible formats for social bowls have had a strong impact on the structure of the game, which has seen a reduction in the age of participants and the time required to play,” Bridge added.
A number of Bowls Clubs in our community are participating in bowls month, including:
- Bendigo East Bowling Club
- Bendigo VRI Bowling Club
- Golden Square Bowling & Croquet Club
Over the past two years, regular bowls participation has increased at an average rate of 3.6 per cent per year and is one of the fastest growing social sports in Victoria. Encouraging participation in sport is an integral part of Bowls Month after VicHealth research conducted earlier this year found that fewer than one in three Australians are getting enough physical activity to benefit their health.
