Grant supports Warnbro bowlers
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.
