Everglades Country Club in Woy Woy will re-open its bowling greens for normal use this week, after almost two months of reduced hours.
Organiser Mr John Orme said: “After a six week hiatus, Everglades country club was the first club in NSW to resume lawn bowls.
“Thanks to management, the bowlers resumed on May 5 using a two-hour roll-up session three times each day on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays.
The month of May saw 600 attendees getting passive exercise and catching up with old friends thus helping mental health after being isolating for over six weeks.
“It was pleasing to see what just two hours a couple of days a week can do for general health and comradeship.
“A raffle was also run raising just over $1000 for Central Coast Kids in Need.
“The June attendance is set to top over 700 after visits from other clubs members including Ettalong, Umina, Gosford and Davistown.
“Bowls at Everglades will resume as normal from July 1,” he said.
