Indigenous groups have been taking to the green at Shepparton RSL to learn more about the art of lawn bowls.
Shepparton RSL Bowls Club has invited local groups to roll a few down the green as part of a Bowls Australia program to get Indigenous people involved with the sport.
Shepparton RSL match committee member Gerald Ryan said the involved groups would play off against each other in a friendly game at the end of the program.
‘‘Indigenous people traditionally have great involvement with sports like football and basketball, so we thought we’d see if we can get them involved with lawn bowls too,’’ Mr Ryan said.
‘‘It’s given them the chance to get out and enjoy this great sport.’’
Participant Shaun Hansen had a bowl at Shepparton RSL on Monday and has been involved with the project since it began a couple of weeks ago.
‘‘I enjoyed it more than I thought I would — it’s been a chance for people to get out into the community and do something different,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s productive and I’m really supportive of it. We’ll see how it goes, it’s just fun and good to be active.’’
