New lights brighten up Coatesville Bowls Club

Whether you are involved in club competitions or want to participate in social bowls activities such as barefoot bowls, you can now enjoy a game once the sun goes down.

Coatesville Bowls Club, located at Mackie Road Reserve, has recently completed a lighting upgrade involving the installation of 100 lux LED globes.

Mayor Cr Anne-Marie Cade and Cr Jane Karslake were joined by Nick Staikos MP and Coatesville Bowls Club committee members on Friday 24 May to officially open the upgraded space.

The Coatesville Bowls Club has been a valued part of the community since 1960.

Mayor Cr Anne-Marie Cade commented about the impact these new upgrades will have on the local community.

“The lighting upgrade will allow friends and families to play a game after work, relaxing over conversation and a little healthy competition. It will also allow for immediate rematches after a tense match or a sudden revision of the competition to best out of three.”

“Coatesville Bowls Club brings the community together and I’m proud that Glen Eira City Council was able to support this project.”

The Club is excited to be able to offer more opportunities for the community to participate in bowls, whether as a member or a casual visitor.

Importantly, the upgrade also delivers environmental and cost-saving benefits associated with LED lighting technology.

This project has been delivered by Coatesville Bowls Club in partnership with the Victorian Government through the Community Sport and Recreation grants and supported by Glen Eira Council.
