It was a perfect night in Melbourne last Friday 16th for the inaugural ASGA Victorian Bowls Event, held at the Melbourne Bowling Club in Windsor.

While the style and skill of some players left room for improvement, the networking was first-class, with attendees relishing the chance to relax after a busy week in the Melbourne sunshine. ASGA Bowls IMG 7767

“This is an idea we have had for some time and have successfully piloted in South Australia, and it’s great to be finally rolling the program out nationally this year,” says Mick Harrold, ASGA President.

“While our golf days are always popular events, we know that not everyone is partial to a round of golf, nor can everyone spare a day away from work to participate. These bowls events are designed to be a more informal way to network with colleagues after work on a Friday night, with a fun round of social bowls thrown in for entertainment.
