Millswood Bowls

I keep hearing good stories about Millswood Bowls. The Eastern Courier has picked up on this today and published a great article. I hear the Friday dinners are great. Thanks for the story Emmie Dowling.
SOCIAL lawn bowls has really taken off at Millswood Bowling Club.
More than 50 new players have joined the club in the past six months.
The surge in players comes after it announced in August it may have to close due to dwindling numbers.
The Eastern Courier Messenger reported last year the club needed to double its playing numbers to prevent closure.
A social media campaign and attracting new sponsors helped draw additional members to the club.
Rookie bowler Nick Henrys, 24, has been playing at Millswood socially since October. "It’s a friendly and social place," Mr Henrys, of Goodwood, said. "When we approached the club they were accommodating, trained us and let us borrow bowls to practice at home." Club member Nick Miers said the challenge for Millswood now was to covert social bowlers to the club’s pennant teams.
Mr Miers said they needed another 10 players to join the 18 already playing in its Wednesday and Saturday pennant competitions.
He said the club was also in discussions with Unley Council over a possible clubroom upgrade.
A For more information or to become a member or social bowler, phone the club on 8271 3172.
