RSL bowling club, Geelong
The Geelong RSL’s sports offerings comprised billiards and cards when the club first opened in 1916 but lawn bowls became part of the RSL’s sporting repertoire in 1951 with the creation of a Geelong RSL bowling club. Today the Geelong RSL’s bowling green serve the dual purpose of providing bowls rinks for players and an attractive vista for guests enjoying the facilities of the RSL’s Geelong function centre which overlooks the playing surface.
The RSL’s bowls club quickly entrenched itself into Geelong’s sporting community and today the RSL Green is a popular destination for bowlers competing in pennant competitions on Saturdays and Tuesdays and Bowls Victoria events on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturday’s. As well, the bowling club provides social bowls, bowls coaching, skills coaching and practice and also offers occasional games of social barefoot bowls.
The RSL bowling club in Geelong welcomes inquiries from prospective members and also provides coaching under the supervision and tuition of Bowls Victoria-accredited coaches.
