Your contact information is only accessible to authorised WA Health personnel and will not be provided to any other Government entity or third party marketing agency.

A special warm Dolphin welcome goes out to our newest members who have joined our wonderful Club since October 2020.
Wow 28 new members since the beginning of October. That is truly fantastic.
Thank you to all of you for making our club the envy of other clubs all around as they struggle to draw new members. The depth of our membership continues to grow and this strengthens our club throughout.
Our hardworking committee is always looking for ways to improve our club for all so feel free to offer any suggestions you may have for improvements or even your first impressions.
As mentioned previously we have introduced a “buddy” system this year for new members to help you settle in and learn the ropes. Nancy Sutton and Chris Beaney are the coordinators. If you haven’t been buddied up please let Nancy, Chris or myself know and we will get you set up.
Thanks again for becoming a Dolphin and I wish you all a long and enjoyable association with our club.

Bowls WA has established a Junior Bowls Committee in an attempt to encourage more young people to get involved with the great sport of bowls. The purpose of the Committee is to assist clubs with providing pathways to young people that enter our sport, to keep them engaged, and to increase family involvement in the sport.
Bowls WA has been aware that in some areas throughout the State there has been some fantastic programs taking place, encouraging students to try bowls, through school programs and through junior club clinics. These programs have largely been isolated however, so this Committee is seen as an opportunity to bring these great people together and help more clubs achieve in this area.
The members of the Committee have all had involvement in junior programs, in one form or another, and are all passionate about encouraging more young people into the sport. They are:
Laura Merz (Manning), Vicki Bowden (Halls Head), Mark Roemermann (Joondalup), Shane Smith (Quinns Rocks), Allan Petchell (Rossmoyne), Peter Collins (Mosman Park), Paul Norton (Mosman Park), Ken Perks (Morley), Steve Unsworth (BA RBM), Clive Adams (BA RBM)
Whilst one outcome of the Committee’s work may be more juniors being available for State representation, this is not the key role of the panel. The key role is a real focus at grassroots level to simply help clubs put successful junior programs in place, and then provide the pathways for them to follow through and remain engaged with our sport into the future.
“Everyone on the Committee has had success with junior programs in some form”, said RBM Clive Adams. “This Committee has been on myself and Steve’s agenda for some time, so it is exciting to see it coming together”.
The first meeting of the Committee was held on Monday 8th December at Bowls WA headquarters, and it was a meeting full of ideas and passion. As the Committee evolves, you can expect to see guidelines and advice come directly from the Committee out to those at clubs, to help set them on the correct path.
“A major attraction of our sport is family involvement”, Adams added. “By embracing students, and their families and showing them the experiences they can have together as a family, as well as then demonstrating the individual success that many of our young players have achieved, there is a great opportunity for Clubs to recruit new players, both young people, and adults”.
Bowls Australia’s recently relaunched Rookie Rollers campaign, formerly Jr Jack Attack, will no doubt form part of the Committee’s discussions, however the pathways need to go beyond that. Once a program has been conducted at a school, what is next for anyone interested in taking up the sport more regularly? This will be a key area for the Committee to address.
Greetings fellow members. Finally the new pennant season is upon us. The ladies competition started today so hopefully they had a very successful but above all an enjoyable beginning to the season in what looked to be great weather.
The men get underway on Saturday with most games commencing at 12.30 (due to the AFL grand final) however, both first and fifth division play even earlier so make sure that you check out the starting times for your division.
Due to the continuation of stage 4 COVID restrictions remaining for some time your committee has decided to follow Bowls WA recommendations in relation to the serving of shared platters of food and will not be offering food after pennants. The following notice will been sent out today to all other clubs advising them of our decision.
Following the earlier advice from Bowls WA that clubs should not be serving shared platters of food (sandwiches, party pies, cheese and biscuits etc) to tables while Phase 4 restrictions are in place Joondalup Bowling Club has taken the decision to follow this advice and will suspend the serving of platters of food after all pennant games from the commencement of the 2020/21 season. We will review our decision after the Christmas break and in line with Government announcements as to the further lifting of COVID restrictions.
Food will be available for purchase by individuals wishing to do so and we encourage continuing the tradition of catching up after the game over a drink. Coffee and tea is available as well from The Pitch Inn at our club rooms.
We wish all clubs a COVID safe and prosperous and successful season
Your committee appreciates that this may disappoint some members and visitors to our club but consider that it is all our best interests at this time even though we have been very lucky in this State in relation to any further outbreaks of the virus for some months. We hope to keep it that way.
Green fees normally are $6 for home games. Due to food costs they had been increased to $7 per week to cover the cost of food. As a consequence of our no food decision fees will be reduced to $5 per week for men’s pennant and bankers. This will allow us to subsidise/cover the occasional bus for some longer distance pennant games during the season plus provide for an end of season wind up. The ladies fees will remain at $7 per home game which covers the cost of a morning cup of tea.
Finally, a huge welcome to all our new bowlers this season. A mix of experienced, new and returning members. Not forgetting of course those of us who keep turning up year after year. It’s good to be back.
Let’s have a great year and continue to push the Joondalup banner even higher.
We have a wrong bias tin in which members deposit $2.00 if they happen to put down a wrong biased bowl. So if you are playing pennants, a championship event, and social bowls or even just practicing we are sure your fellow bowlers will remind you about the tin, if you happen to forget. In the time the wrong bias tin has been going over $950.00 has been raised to go towards a donation to Cancer research and Legacy.
Thank you to all those members who continue to forget to look at the bias before delivery
