The Geeveston Bowls Club have been acknowledged as a state finalist by Good Sports in Tasmania for their efforts in seeking improvements in all corners of the club.
An hour south of Hobart on the Apple Isle, Geeveston have adopted a number of positive initiatives in conjunction with Regional Bowls Manager Simon Morrison, including raising the club’s accreditation from Level 1 to 3, receiving $54,000 in funding to repair a leaking roof and upgrade on the kitchen and flooring.
Liz, the secretary of the club, was praised by Morrison for her tireless efforts in continuing to search for improvement, which next will be umbrella shades for bowlers.
A member since 1979, Liz is as invested in the club as anyone, proud of what Geeveston do and how they contribute to the community.
“We make sure everyone is ok and gets home safe. We are a place to meet, and it’s not snobby. People come back for the banter and the camaraderie,” she said.
The club has changed over the years, with many more women playing than they did before, many of them bringing their kids or the grandkids along.
A family-friendly approach has been adopted, with the club adhering to the Good Sports Alcohol Management Policy.
Geeveston Bowls Club is an important part of the community, recognise by Good Sports because of their continued dedication and commitment to providing a safe, well-managed and family-friendly club for the local community.
