Isis Club’s big win
Management and staff excited hardwork has paid off after picking up a Club Queensland Awards honour
LAST Tuesday night, Keno and Clubs Queensland held its Awards for Excellence with the Isis Club taking home the award for Best Bowls Club Venue (Small) in Queensland.
More than 1100 guests from across the state headed to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to see the Isis Club take home the award.
The Isis Club has seven fully maintained synthetic rinks, with the green covered by their automated shade sail to reduce sun exposure and allow the greens to be used all year round.
With significant junior development programs, the club has recently been able to purchase 10 sets of junior bowls to enable local children the opportunity to learn and appreciate the sport of bowls.
Running a program with local school St Joseph’s Primary, the students regularly visited the club during PE lessons and were taught some of the sport’s tricks and techniques by a group of volunteer local bowlers.
While the club holds local pennant tournaments and corporate bowls competitions, the club is also pleased to offer barefoot bowls days to all members of the community for those looking to appreciate the sport in a less competitive way, and enjoy a day on the green.
Clubs Queensland Chief Executive Officer Doug Flockhart congratulated the Isis Club on their awards success.
“The Isis Club is a significant advocate for the sport of bowls, providing fantastic facilities for the local community,” Mr Flockhart said.
“The club recognises the importance of junior development and encourages participation to ensure bowls continues to be a popular Australian sport for all ages,” he said.
