Kerang BC AAA Day
Due to popular demand it was back on the greens at the Kerang Bowling Club for people of all abilities in early 2017.
This club is very supportive to inclusive sport and recreation and it is people like club member Gayle Teasdale that makes it all happen and ensures that everyone who attends is made to feel very welcome.
Gayle has also been assisted by Jeff Jackson and Merv Tilley and we all appreciate their volunteer time and approach to increase inclusive sport and recreation.
Rhonda Allan of the Mallee Sports Assembly once again approached the Kerang Bowling Club to open their doors for people of all abilities.
This program is an initiative of the Access for All Abilities (AAA) program (funded by Department of Health & Human Services under the Sport & Recreation of Victoria umbrella) which focuses on inclusive sport and recreation for all levels of abilities.
Over two weeks, staff and clients from Murray Human Services participated in an hour-long session of lawn bowling.
Club member Lorraine Adams was also on deck for the second week to provide encouragement to the participants when required.
The club also has a bowling arm which aids participants with limited movement which enables increased participation.
The greens at the Kerang Bowling Club are in tip-top condition which provides a wonderful environment for outdoor physical activity. It doesn’t matter what your level of skill is at lawn bowls, anyone is most welcome to come along and join in.
