The 8th Annual Multi Disability State Championships (September, 9-12) returned to the Chermside Bowls Club with a bang with dazzling displays of bowling from this year’s competitors.

Brisbane City Council was a supporter of the 2018 Championships, with the event officially opened by Cr Fiona King representing the local BCC ward of Marchant.

Cr King wished all the competitors well, saying bowls was a sport dear to her heart (her father bowls locally at Northern Suburbs).

The championships are proudly organized and supported each year by Bowls QLD and Sports Connect, representing Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association, Queensland Blind Bowlers Association, Deaf Sports and Recreation QLD, and Life Stream Australia.
