The Edge Hill Bowls Club has a rich history of achievements which continues to this day with Kaitlyn Smith winning Gold in Disability Bowls and Col Kelly winning Gold in State and Australian Singles matches. Our first division men’s Pennant team is a regular winner, and our ladies won the Ladies District Inaugural 9 A Side Competition in 2021.
The past couple of years with the advent of COVID-19 has challenged many businesses including the Bowls Club, having to close down for months while the country came to grips with the pandemic.
However, during these months, the Club took advantage of the opportunity of being closed with a forward-thinking Committee making the decision to refurbish the club, repaint and replace/repair and renew the inside of the building. This was completed with the assistance of Taubman’s Paints and a grant from the Cairns Shire for the labour. During this time the club also completed an application to become a Dementia Friendly Club making it a more usable space for people with disability and dementia.
The Club sought and won a grant from Dementia Australia which has been utilised to replace crockery, bathroom amenities, purchase small junior size lawn bowls and many other items and activities are in operation that make the club an inviting space for not only people with dementia but also our regular patrons.
The Bowls Club is now and all-inclusive club, having no discrimination regarding the community and activities are made available for all people to enjoy.
This is highlighted by the fact that we now have a variety of functions in the club that include all races, creeds and sexual preferences. We also upgraded our digital footprint by accommodating online enquiries through our website for bistro, social competition bowls and barefoot bowls. The Edge Hill Bowls Club is an excellent venue with plenty to offer every member of the community.
