Bowling Outside

We are in uncertain times right now. A lot of people do not have access to their bowling equipment. Here I am using a tool from Eileen’s Bowling Buddies in order to work on technique. Find something around your house that you can swing, then go do some drills!

Bundy Bowl

Like a few of the centres, the guys in Bundaberg are taking the opportunity to do some renovations.

The renovations even made the news!

Bundy Bowl & Leisure Centre renovation

The Bundy Bowl & Leisure Centre is making the most of its forced closure to renovate. The team has spent the last few days smashing brick walls to make way for one of the biggest arcades in the region. “We had great therapy in knocking down some walls. We have a skeleton team of staff here that are with us and our job now is to make this place better than what it was before” – Owner, Peter McElligott. Report on 7NEWS Wide Bay at 6pm. www.7NEWS.com.au #7NEWS
