The club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and is hosting an open day this Sunday. People can head down to the club and have a go at playing bowls.

There will also be food stalls.

The club first formed in 1966 and now has almost 600 members.

Mr Scupham said they were in the process of developing a new club house, which the club was currently seeking funding for.

“The club is in a very good place,” he said.

“Bowls is a very good pasttime for people around the retirement age.”

But Mr Scupham said it was not just a sport for those retired and encouraged juniors to start playing.

“If you look at all the people playing for Australia, they are not bald and grey; you need foot and hand-eye co-|ordination,” he said.
