COACHING & LEARN TO BOWL
Coaching & Learn to Bowl
The Club has a number of qualified coaches who can provide coaching assistance to prospective new bowlers wishing to take up the game of Lawn Bowls or current bowlers wishing to improve their skills. This service is free to all new and existing bowling members.
Coaching can be arranged by appointment.
Our Club Coaches also conduct a six week “Lawn Bowls for Beginners” course in conjunction with St. George Sutherland Community College (SGSCC) during each of the four College terms.
Enrolments are handled by SGSCC – for details Phone the College on 9528 3344.

Approved Bowls Shoes MUST be worn whenever ‘on The Green’
All Bowlers MUST check the Green Display boards for the availability of a green, before Rolling-up on any particular day. No Roll-ups are permitted if the board indicates that a green is closed.
All roll-ups MUST be on the rink boundary markers, NOT on the centreline!
- Please don’t place Bowls Bags on the seats.
- When ‘turning-over’ the score board, after the game, turn the ‘numbers’ towards the front
- Return scorecards to the controlling body immediately on completion of the match.
- As you leave a green (whether after organized bowls or just a ‘roll-up’) – look around you:
º If shades are still extended… roll them in (even if you didn’t extend them)
º Ensure all mats & jacks are returned to their respective Mat Box
º If yours is the last rink to finish on a green, ensure the Mat Box is locked
º Return all empty glasses to the bar (the sprinklers will blow them off the drink stand) and recycling bottles and cans in the blue lidded recycling bins.
º Return water barrels & cup holders to the bar
- Look after the greens! They are our major asset, eg:
º Move the mat to even out the wear.
º Don’t drop bowls from the bank.
º Don’t ‘dump’ your bowls or ‘shoot from the hip’
Please look after the greens, they are there for all to enjoy !
These are all very simple things that we ALL should be doing. Please don’t leave it to ‘someone else’ .
We ALL have an obligation to ‘Do The Right Thing’
If you see someone not complying… please politely remind them of their obligation as it is our Club for our benefit
