Come rain, hail or shine, two of the City’s bowling greens are ready for action with new synthetic turf laid ahead of the season.
City of Bayswater Mayor Filomena Piffaretti said the newly installed greens at Bedford and Morley bowling clubs would provide competition-ready spaces for members and the broader community to enjoy.
“Both clubs have upgraded from grass to synthetic turf to enable year-round play and minimise maintenance,” she said.
“The green at Morley Bowling Club has also been widened to accommodate more rinks, meaning two league teams can now play on the same green at the same time.
“The upgrades were funded by the City, local clubs and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, with each contributing around $80,000 towards each project.
“Converting traditional green turf to synthetic turf provides our bowling community with a better quality surface to play the sport they love all year round.
“Whether you play socially or competitively, clubs are an important way for people in our community to connect with each other. Our bowling clubs are social hubs that provide members with an opportunity to be part of a fun, friendly club atmosphere.
“Lawn bowls is an inclusive sport for all ages, especially our seniors. It’s a great way to meet new people, engage with our community and enjoy time with family and friends.”
