$3.6 million Lawn Bowls Facility opens in Torrensville

$3.6 million Lawn Bowls Facility opens in Torrensville
August 5, 2019

Following its new undercover hi-tech dome upgrade, Torrensvile Bowling Club, one of Adelaide’s oldest and greatest lawn bowls clubs is now one of Australia's most modern clubs. Satisfying sporting and community needs, the club was officially opened on Friday 2nd August.

The $3.6 million facility secured Australian Government funding of $750,000 to facilitate construction of the 12 rink under cover green, with works undertaken concurrently with club room renovations.

The new state of the art facility puts South Australian lawn bowls firmly on the international map. Five minutes from the airport and the CBD respectively, the location is ideal for International and Interstate tournaments and for hosting social, community and corporate events.

Torrensville Bowling Club has a very rich history, made up of local clubs that have merged and amalgamated over its 100 year history. From Hindmarsh, Underdale, Thebarton, West Park and Adelaide Airport, it’s a very well loved part of the West Torrens district and their cultural history is one the club is very proud of. The club’s vision is to foster a venue where locals and visitors can tap into the region’s roots and experience the unique atmosphere of diversity and one of the oldest sports in Australia.

To celebrate the occasion and in support of its community, the club hosted a public event, Bowled Over immediately after the official ceremony. Lessons on the new undercover greens were delivered from some of the best and established older players at the club.

Shining bright under the club’s new LED lights, the community event was aimed at fostering the fun of lawn bowls with experienced professional players on the green coaching and mentoring beginners.

A big part of the club’s vision is to foster skill sharing with the most experienced players imparting knowledge to the young millennials, who like nothing more than to experience new things in a fun, fresh and energised environment.
