Bowling with Babies

Bowling with Babies is a fitness and social activity that you can enjoy with your little one.

Bowling with Babies brings new and expecting parents together to enjoy a coffee, a chat and a social roll.

Supported by VicHealth, Bowling with Babies aims to assist less active parents to become more active and enable them time to focus on their physical well-being in a fun, relaxing and comfortable environment – with their baby.

If you’re expecting, attending a Bowling with Babies session also enables you to connect with other parents in the area, and help to build a supportive peer network before your baby arrives. Family and friends are always welcome and encouraged to join in the fun with you!

Bringing baby 

 Bowling with Babies is fully equipped for little crawlers on the green. We provide change tables, comfortable feeding areas and playpens. There is also plenty of time crawling on the green. Older children are welcome, but the more mobile they are the more mum or dad has to keep an eye on them!

Why Bowls?

– It’s fun and social
– Keeps you fit and health
– Enhances mental wellbeing
– It’s inexpensive to play
– It’s a sport for all abilities
– Improves cognitive function

Bowls is a game that can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life. One of the best things about bowls is you can learn how to play at your first attempt. Once you’ve picked up the main aspects and taught how to avoid bowling a ‘wrong bias’ (when the bowl curves in the opposite direction to your intended target), you’ll be on your way.
