Ringwood Bowls Club: Get on the Green Corporate Challenge 2008

By January 30, 2008No Comments

The Ringwood Bowls Club, established in 1929, is located at 2-12 Loughnan Road between the Warrandyte Road and Ringwood Street intersections.

Tonight I was invited to the launch of the Get on the Green Corporate Challenge, an eight week program which encourages businesses to participate in a lawn bowls competition and to learn about the sport. Like the inaugural event held last year, this year’s event has continued to receive strong interest from the business community with many companies returning to participate in the challenge.

The Ringwood Bowls Club is becoming renowned for its innovation in encouraging sporting participation and sustainability. The Club is heavily focused on water conservation, with plans to install water tanks and stormwater retention systems to provide for the watering of their lawn greens. The club has been successful in receiving grants from both the Commonwealth government and council to assist in funding these initiatives. It is also hoped that the State Government will provide assistance to ensure that this project is undertaken.

The Ringwood Bowls Club deserves to be congratulated for its initiatives in regard to water sustainability.

The Ringwood Bowls Club is open to people of all ages. For further information please visit
