The City of Geelong Bowls Club is celebrating following the opening of their new facility over the weekend.
This project marks the start of an exciting new era for lawn bowls in Geelong, completing the merger of two popular clubs – Drumcondra and Geelong West.
The new super centre for bowls features a fully accessible clubhouse, an undercover synthetic green and an outdoor synthetic green.
Minister for Sport John Eren was on hand to officially open the centre, following the Labor Government’s $650,000 investment to help build the state-of-the-art facility.
“This bowls super centre ticks all the boxes – it’s a great place for the whole community to come and try lawn bowls in a fun and social setting while getting active,” he said.
“With more and more families moving to our great region, the new centre provides more opportunity for locals to have a roll, host the big tournaments and watch the best of the best in their own backyard.”
Member for Geelong Christine Couzens acknowledged the impact the new facility will have on the local community.
“We’re supporting grassroots community sports clubs like the City of Geelong Bowls Club. This new centre will enable the Geelong community to enjoy the wonderful sport of bowls in first-class facilities.”
