Clubs Make the Best of Covid-19 Break
COVID-19 restrictions gave clubs a rare opportunity to upgrade their facilities and conduct maintenance around their club.
Bayswater Bowling & Recreation Club
Bayswater through multiple busy bees were able to put together a fantastic outdoor playground area. Through donation of equipment and volunteers this club got busy during the break in order to cater to families visiting their club to make the experience more enjoyable.
Broome Bowling Club
The renovation of the Broome Bowling Club began early in the year and were finalised during the break. The renovation of the outdoor patio with the addition of outdoor ceiling fans is a a great upgrade for a bowling club and the end result is fantastic.
Doubleview Bowling Club
Doubleview decided to give some of the clubhouse a fresh lick of paint during the break. Small things like this can breathe new life into a club and freshen up the area.
Kardinya Bowling Club
Kardinya saw the installation of a new green over the break that was broken in quickly after restrictions were eased.

Wanneroo Sports and Social Club
Wanneroo attracted the attention of PerthNow as a result of all their efforts during the restrictions to upgrade their facilities. President Dennis Hampton said the committee and volunteers had been working to modernise facilities in the building, which had housed the club for more than 50 years. “Because we were closed down by coronavirus, we thought we would take the opportunity to upgrade it. We could never do some of the work that we are doing now if we were fully operational.” Mr Hampton said the club had about 540 members and four sports sections, so there were people in it virtually every day. The club received a $20,000 grant in January, which it had to match, to replace carpets that were two or three decades old. It also decided to update the dance floor and with the club closed for several weeks, Mr Hampton said they decided to do more painting and renovations. Mr Hampton said volunteers had been working on a roster to maintain social distancing requirements and share the load.
