NORTH Haven Bowling Club will kick off a new season of bowls on October 1 with the first use of newly installed lights.
A night of free bowls will begin at 5.30pm Saturday October 1, with a barbecue and live music.
The event is open to all barefoot, social and experienced bowlers.
The club’s bowls administrator Shane Globits is keen to see night games introduced at the club.
He said the club’s two synthetic greens, now under lights, will hopefully attract more people to the sport of bowls who, perhaps due to work commitments, are unable to join in a game during the day.
“We’ve had a good response from the members about the lights and many are keen to play twilight bowls as the weather warms up,” Mr Globits said.
“It also means in the summer our members can play away from the heat of the day.”
To book your place at the free bowls night contact the bowls office on 6559 8259.
Coming up on the sporting calendar at the North Haven Bowling Club on October 4 will be the interclub challenge over six weeks, a seven-a-side comp for men and women.
From October 15 to 22 the club celebrates their annual Riverview Carnival which, for the first time, will include twilight games.
“We have 420 teams coming this year and it’s the largest carnival hosted by a single club in the Southern Hemisphere,” Mr Globits said.
The event will see 1700 bowlers at the club over the eight days.
Mr Globits is also keen to start a regular business house bowls competition on Monday nights. The first will be on October 31 and local businesses are encouraged to enter.
“Each team of non-bowlers will be placed with one of our experienced bowlers and the prize money up for grabs will be donated to the winning businesses’ charity or sporting group of choice,” Mr Globits said.
