Queenslanders Rolled on Down with Invictus

As part of Invictus Australia’s partnership with Bowls Australia, we were pleased to offer this wonderful opportunity for members of our Defence community to participate in the sport at a local club in Toowoomba.

Bowls is one of the most popular sports in Australia and it’s easy to see why. It’s a sport for all ages and abilities, there are regular competitions and great social connections on and off the green.

We held our very first event for the South East Queensland region on Sunday 5th March with a mix of current and former veterans, and their families joining us.

With over 50 participants registered on the day, they enjoyed a quick coaching session from Micheal Sorrensen, followed by some social games on the green. We finished up with a BBQ hosted by Club Toowoomba.

Our families really enjoyed the day and we have had some wonderful feedback:

Thank you for inviting us along to the lawn bowls event. The kids and I had a fabulous day playing bowls and other games plus meeting old and new friends.  Micheal was so knowledgeable and it was great to get some tips on the game! We love events that involve the whole family and keep us active and having fun. We cannot wait for the next event

A big thank you to Bowls Australia and Club Toowoomba for generously volunteering and providing the venue, green fees and lunch.
We look forward to our next being held on 30th April at Rosewood Bowls Club Ipswich.
