Kahibah Women’s Bowling Club prides itself on welcoming new members and visitors
Kahibah Women’s Bowling Club was established on 10th May 1960, where the inaugural meeting was attended by just eight women. Only one foundation member is alive today. Since those humble beginnings, it has been the hard work and dedication among these ladies and members that helped build our Club. At one point Ladies even helped to lay the grass onto the green!
Within a short time, the Kahibah Women’s Bowling Club became a force to be reckoned with in the game of lawn bowls. Betty Bellis won the inaugural Newcastle City Masters. Kahibah Women’s Bowling Club has been well represented on two District Associations with Irene Murray holding the position of District President and Marie Bradbery, one of our present members, as the current LMDWBA’s President.
Since those early days of neck to ankle white dresses, hats, white stockings, and shoes, our game has become more relaxed with the addition of colourful uniforms including a choice of long trousers, skorts, shorts and mid-length trousers in the Club’s colours. Our Historians have kept wonderful records of those bygone days. We are always looking for new members to join our friendly and caring Club, so come and join us and share our wonderful history.
