Bowling with Babies: Play Bowls with your Baby

by BecSorby (follow)
Bring your baby along to play bowls!

Have you ever tried bowls? This fun fitness and social activity is perfect for expecting and new parents. At Bowling with Babies, you can bring your little one along too.

Supported by VicHealth, Bowling with Babies brings parents together to enjoy a coffee, a chat and a social roll.



Why play bowls?

Itís fun and social
Keeps you fit and healthy
Enhances mental wellbeing
Itís inexpensive to play
Itís a sport for all abilities
Improves cognitive function



Bowling with Babies aims to assist less active parents to become more active, plus focus on their physical well-being in a fun, relaxing and comfortable environment with their baby.

If youíre expecting, attending a Bowling with Babies session also enables you to connect with other parents in your local area, and help to build a supportive peer network before your baby arrives.



Bowling with Babies is also part of the†This Girl Can - Victoria†campaign, which aims to get women more active.

Why not get together a group of family and friends and bring them along with you?

Bowls Clubs with Bowling with Babies sessions are fully equipped for little crawlers on the green.

They provide change tables, comfortable feeding areas, blankets and playpens. There is also plenty of time crawling on the green.



Older children are welcome, but the more mobile they are the more mum or dad has to keep an eye on them - and that means less bowling time!

Each club has worked closely with Bowls Victoria to ensure their facilities are suitable and their club is welcoming to all families, including dedicated and supportive volunteers.

You can find your nearest Bowling with Babies club here.

If there isnít a club close to you, but you really want to give it a go,†get in touch with Bowls Victoria and they will get in touch with a local club and try to add a Bowling with Babies program for you.
