New bowling green at Kiewa Valley Bowling Club

The Kiewa Valley Bowls Club is located at Coulston Park in Tangambalanga and is an important facility for physical activity and community connection.

The new surface is a synthetic woven carpet similar to the older surface and now meets all specifications to Australian Bowls Standards.

Why was this project undertaken and how was it funded? 

The current surface was due for renewal after 11 years in place as some parts of the surface had worn to such an extent that it is becoming unplayable. 

The club had budgeted for the renewal and contributed $50,000 to the works, with the balance provided from our assets renewal funding in the 2022-23 Capital Works Program.

Funding contributor  Amount 
Kiewa Valley Bowling Club $50,000 
Indigo Shire Council $130,000

Preparation works for the new synthetic carpet have begun, with the old carpet removed and the base now ready to go.

The project is on target for completion in July, so there will be plenty of time for practice prior to the beginning of the new season.
