Kahibah Womens Bowling Club prides itself on welcoming new members and visitors
Kahibah Women's Bowling Club was established on 10th May 1960 and will be holding its 60th Birthday Celebrations during 2020. The inaugural meeting was attended by just eight women. Only one foundation member is alive today.
Since those humbling 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 inagural Newcastle City Masters.
Kahibah Women's Bowling Club have been well represented on two District Associations with Irene Murray holding the position of District President and Marie Bradbery, one of our present members, the 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 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 which will be on display at our 60th Birthday celebrations in 2020.
We are always looking for new members to join our friendly and carign Club, so come and join us and share our wonderful history.
