The Kingaroy Bowls Club would like to honour four of its long serving players, who have a combined age of 361. Their attendance and participation in bowls on a regular basis is quite insurmountable, even when temperatures have reached more than 30 degrees.

In past years at Kingaroy, ladies played each Wednesday while the men filled the three greens on most Saturdays but now Thursday is the most popular day. Many of the players also attend other South Burnett Clubs for annual ladies’ days. The men’s Country Masters tournaments have brought many male bowlers from all parts of Queensland to Kingaroy, with the ladies club members prepare morning teas and luncheons.

Kingaroy Bowls Club is proud of their members and welcome anyone for a visit to their club.
