It takes just one volunteer to start a ripple effect.

Without our Volunteers, the Happy Valley Bowling Club would not exist.

Our Volunteers are the backbone of our Club and they really do make a difference.

Thanks to all our volunteers, past, present and future for your commitment as we strive to strengthen and grow our Club.

A message from Bowls SA

Bowls Australia have recently announced the impending removal of the requirement to produce a Medical Certificate in order to obtain approval for use of a Bowling Arm as detailed in their announcement which can be found by clicking here. 

Bowls SA will fall into line with Bowls Australia and effective 1 May 2019 will no longer require a Medical Certificate in order to approve use of Bowling Arms.

Associations may determine their own position on whether to administer an approval process for use of a Bowling Arm or not.

The following policies and forms have been updated to reflect this decision:

For any further clarification you may require, please feel free to contact the Bowls SA Office on 8234 7544.

Kind Regards,

Erin Haines
