The newly completed bowling green at RCA Village’s newest retirement community in Armstrong Creek will be the venue for a Social Summer Series Bowling event, celebrating the launch of the village’s bowling club.

Armstrong Green, which is home to almost 120 active and independent retirees, is in its final stages of construction. The bowling green sits adjacent to the luxurious clubhouse which offers an indoor lap pool, spa, café and bar as well as pampering room and manager’s office.

“Bowling is an important part of village life,” said Village Manager, Kerry Rentsch.

“Many of our residents were already seasoned bowlers, and these folk are generally eager to share their experience and help build a thriving bowling community within the village. Apart from the obvious social and competitive aspects of the game, lawn bowls can help build better fitness and dexterity, so there are lots of benefits.”

During the Summer Series, Armstrong Green residents, along with members of bowling clubs from the surrounding areas will get together and try their hand at winning cash and prizes while enjoying the magnificent facilities at Armstrong Green. The first of the series kicked off in December under sunny skies. Many participants were bowling for the first time, while other more experienced bowlers were there to show them the ropes.

For those considering retirement living, Ms Rentsch recommends taking a tour of the village.

“You can meet the residents, inspect the display homes and the clubhouse and discover all that village life has to offer. RCA hosts monthly free events which are an ideal way to enjoy some hospitality and get to know the village.”

Armstrong Green is open for tours 7 days (excluding public holidays) between 9am and 4pm. To book a tour or register for a free event call the friendly team on Free call 1800 777 898.
