COCK­BURN Bowl­ing and Recre­ation Club has moved in to Visko Park, which of­fi­cially opened on Satur­day.

The new fa­cil­ity, which cov­ers more than 1400sq m and will be home to the 54-year-old club, has two syn­thetic bowl­ing greens, a new bowl­ing club mem­bers’ sec­tion with a bar and darts area, a large multi-pur­pose ac­tiv­ity and func­tion room avail­able for com­mu­nity hire, a com­mer­cial kitchen to cater for func­tions and other meals, and meet­ing and of­fice fa­cil­i­ties.

Vol­ley­ball WA will run com­pe­ti­tions and train­ing from beach vol­ley­ball courts at the fa­cil­ity, while Area 5 Foot­ball will of­fer mini­foot­ball com­pe­ti­tions.

Bowl­ing club pres­i­dent Pat McBride said it was an ex­cit­ing time of growth for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“Peo­ple are wholeheartedly em­brac­ing the new fa­cil­ity and we hope the peo­ple of the dis­trict con­tinue to adopt it as their so­cial cen­tre,” he said.

Vol­ley­ball WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Robyn Kuhl said the new fa­cil­ity would en­able Vol­ley­ball WA to ex­pand its pres­ence in the south met­ro­pol­i­tan area with a new beach vol­ley­ball club.
