Now, in order to get more players towards this game, several clubs including Wallacia Bowling and St John’s Park Bowling Club have joined hands. As part of this initiative, Renshaw even visited Wallacia Public School to interact with students.

While sharing details about this campaign with journalists, she pointed out that the concerned school has proved to be extremely supportive towards the initiative.

Under this program, more than 50 students have joined the special practice session for the game that is held every Friday morning.

During this training, kids are taught to focus on team-building skills, co-ordination, flexibility, and other skills that help them increase their strength. The game is safer compared to others in which kids can get injured.

 “Training started with basics like rolling the balls towards the hula hoops. The second stage involves teaching them about the competition involved in lawn bowls game,”-said the silver medalist.
