Welcome to the 2018 Bowling for Better Balance

In April 2018 Lawn Bowls NSW will partner with Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) to promote Bowling for Better Balance.

Research has proven the greatest change to the pattern of healthy ageing comes from a fall.

Research has also shown these falls ARE preventable with proper exercise training as we age and strive to maintain mobility and good balance.

At NeuRA we have developed a number of programs to help prevent falls amongst older Australians. These programs offer simple yet effective strategies that people can do at home to improve mobility, stability and to rehabilitate after a fall – for this research to continue vital funds are needed.

Lawn Bowls NSW supports its members’ health and encourages all clubs to join Bowling for Better Balance.

The structure of the event has been designed to minimise administrative demands on clubs and individuals.
