UPDATE Auburn Bowls Club current position on COVID-19

The Auburn Bowls Clubs priority is to the health and well being of our members and Guests.

The committee at this stage is still following information given by, Bowls Victoria, local, state and federal governments, when their advice changes we will let our members know.  For now the committee has decided that the club will cancel all bookings for functions, and stop walk-in barefoot bowls for the next month, to be reviewed when and if the current state of emergency gets reviewed.  The Club will remain open to members until our advice from the relevant bodies changes.

We hosted Hawthorn, a solid game for the team with both rinks getting up.

2018 LePine Triples

Skill on the green

The 2018 LePine Triples was held on the 18th of August. Last year we ran it on the 1st Sept, this allowed our green-keeper to work on the green during a good growth period.  This clashed with a number of club practice matches and Father’s day. The Committee with our Major sponsor of the Day Le Pine Funeral Services, we set an earlier date of 18th of August.

History of Kieser.

The origins of Kieser extend back to 1966 in Switzerland when founder Werner Kieser opened the first Kieser centre. Werner was a boxer and a wrestler in the early 1950s. After an unfortunate boxing accident, he began to look into strength training as a way to speed his recovery. During this time, strength and resistance training was virtually unknown and Werner made it his mission to become the voice for this new type of exercise. Now, over 50 years later, there are over 130 facilities throughout Europe and Kieser is known as the world leader in strength training for health.
