Grant sup­ports Warn­bro bowlers

Kwinana Courier - - News -

A good crowd at­tended the open­ing of Warn­bro Bowl­ing Club’s new all-weather year-round bowl­ing fa­cil­ity.

The mas­sive roof­ing project was largely funded through club fundrais­ing. But it also qual­i­fied for a grant of $20,000 from the Stronger Com­mu­ni­ties Pro­gramme. The club now has a won­der­ful ex­panded fa­cil­ity with roof­ing, in­su­la­tion and lights pro­vid­ing all-weather year-round bowl­ing ca­pa­bil­ity on greens A and B.

Apart from night-time bowls and com­mu­nity func­tions the Warn­bro Bowl­ing Club will be able to take an ex­cit­ing step for­ward and may one day be host­ing Pre­mier­ship bowl­ing on Fri­day nights.

The club has come a long way in a com­par­a­tively short time. The club was founded as the home of the Warn­bro Wizards on Fe­bru­ary 15, 1989 and has con­verted four greens from turf to syn­thetic and em­barked on an am­bi­tious devel­op­ment pro­gram. The men’s bowlng team has se­cured pro­mo­tion to the Premier League – the top divi­sion in the State - for the 2018/19 sea­son.

Madeleine King, the fed­eral mem­ber for Rock­ing­ham and Kwinana, at­tended the of­fi­cial open­ing on Au­gust 3 and of­fi­cially opened the ex­tended fa­cil­ity with Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels.
