Federal Member for Bonner

  • Manly Bowls Club has marked the completion of a $1.15 million upgrade
  • Project delivered new shade cloths, canopies, doors, landscaping and drains
  • The project was fully funded by the Coalition Government

Members at the Manly Bowls Club will be able to compete right through summer after the installation of new shade cloths and canopies.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the project had been fully funded by the Australian Government.

“This $1.15 million project was a 2016 election commitment, and will help protect players from sunburn and the risk of skin cancer,” Mr Chester said.

“The upgrade also included new doors at the clubhouse, better drainage and a hardwood timber deck.”

“The project has already paid dividends for residents, creating 13 construction jobs, along with two permanent jobs.”

Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta said he was pleased to see the upgrade officially opened today, with the new facility set to support the local community.

“It will encourage people to play lawn bowls, encouraging healthy lifestyles within the region, while also improving the sustainability of the club,” Mr Vasta said.

“The canopy connects the eastern and western green, as well as the clubhouse and eastern greens, improving access for all players. The landscaped area adds to the attraction of the Club.”
