Lawn Bowls and Croquet Plan

Lawn Bowls and Croquet Plan prepared by @leisure Planners for the City of Greater Dandenong
2015
There are considerable benefits of bowls and croquet clubs to the City of Greater Dandenong – these include: social capital, providing young competitive bowlers with a depth of competition, keeping older adults active and socially connected, providing participation opportunities for all abilities, contributing to the diversity of sports available in the City, and providing affordable venues for community use. Demand for facilities for bowls and croquet is largely affected by quality of facilities, club costs, and the need to offer and market new products to the Greater Dandenong community. There is some value in reviewing how assets are upgraded, managed and used if the sports are to survive; reviewing the nature and conditions of occupancy agreements and how clubs are charged may assist clubs to better plan for the future. A focus on building relationships between potential partners could make a considerable difference to these clubs. Strengthening partnerships between Council, clubs and peak bodies to enhance the sense of value, and promote clubs and the sports to the community would be beneficial. The development of champions or ambassadors and coordination between internal partners that service specific population areas should be explored: youth, older adults, children and families, as well as communications, assets, planning and parks.
