Bowls gets the green light

Bowls has recommenced at Yarra Junction Bowling Club under Covid-safe restrictions.

Yarra Junction Bowling Club bowlers were delighted to get back on the green on 22 October.

Ten enthusiastic members – the maximum number allowed – rolled up for some much-needed practice and to dust off the cobwebs in preparation for the upcoming, but reduced, season.

Like most sporting activities the club has been closed because of Covid-19 restrictions, but bowls being an outdoor non-contact sport has meant the club could resume earlier than some other sports.

A lot of hard work has been undertaken behind the scenes by committee members and volunteers during the lockdown to prepare for a return to bowls.

When restrictions are lifted further the club hopes to be able to again run the Barefoot

Bowls summer program and offer other opportunities for the community to be involved in bowls.

New members are always welcome to contact the club by emailing yjbc@mail.com or calling the club secretary on 5967 3101.
