Whyalla Bowling Club recently hosted a women's and men's group, from Nunyara Aboriginal Health Services, introducing and coaching these novice players in the game of lawn bowls, over two days of the last week.

The two hour coaching was very popular with both groups, with many of the men and women attendees showing a natural talent for the game, improving their skills and competiveness through the coaching period.

It was soon apparent, to those who took part, that the game of lawn bowls is a sporting activity which can be played by everyone, even with limited movement due to physical restrictions.

The Whyalla Bowling Club coaching team were very pleased with the interest shown by the participants, their attention to coaching tips, and the overall improvement of all those taking part.

The coaching group were also impressed with the ability shown, with a number of both the women and men groups predicted to do well in the more competitive lawn bowls games.

The club provides a facility for a social sporting activity.
