Our Events

Thank you to everyone who came along to our SDMF Bowls Day.

bowls 400 x 400Not many charity sporting events can boast coaching tips from an Australian National Coach and a Paralympian but we were lucky enough to have both on our recent Sir David Martin Foundation Bowls Day.

Steve Glasson and Mark Whiteman generously gave up their time to talk our guests through the rules of the game and deciphered the meanings of rink, ditch, mat, head, bias, skip, lead and jack. We started with a warm up game called Spider – where each player chooses one bowl and from all around the perimeter of the green, aims to bowl it closest to the target – right in the middle. Then the competition began!

The Double Bay Bowling Club was sheltered and sunny on an otherwise windy day. Many thanks to the club’s manager and volunteers for looking after our guests so well and making us all feel welcome. The food was wonderful and much appreciated after all the exertions on the green. Thanks also to our raffle prize donors and sponsors, SDMF volunteers and Board members who all took off their shoes and joined in the fun.

We hope to make this event bigger and better in 2019, so if you’d like to add your name to the expressions of interest, just let us know. (02) 9219 2002 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
