Welcome To Warilla Bowls & Recreation Club

We are opening on Wednesday 3 June!

We may look a little different, but we are excited to re-open our doors and welcome you to Warilla Bowls and Recreation Club, as of 10am from Wednesday 3 June. Due to COVID contact tracing, we are currently only allowing members to enter our premises. If you are not already a member, you are welcome to join from just $5 (1-year social membership).

The health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and suppliers remains our utmost priority and we have introduced strict measures to ensure the health and safety of everyone who visits our venues is safeguarded.

We know you have questions so below are some answers. If you have any other questions do not hesitate to call the Club on 4295 9595.

Opening – We are open 7 days a week from 10am – we have a Covid-19 maximum patron capacity of 275, with restrictions on the amount of people allowed in each area, allowing for 1 person for every 4 square meters.

Entering the venue – Entry is via the front doors only. Health screening of people entering the Club (including staff and contractors) will be undertaken and if you are unwell, you will not be permitted on the premises. Members will be required to sign in and out of the venue with their membership cards or photo identification to ensure we do not exceed limited capacity levels, and also to allow for COVID contact tracing if necessary. All patrons will be required to submit/update their contact details.

Patron Safety – Patrons are expected to adhere to social distancing and hygiene rules whilst in the Club. Floor markings will be present to assist with social distancing in all service areas. The are hand sanitising dispensers throughout the Club – please use them regularly. Covid-19 Safety marshals, easily identified in Hi-Viz jackets, will be on hand to ensure our patrons adhere to the social distancing restrictions in place. One of the rules that we need to make you aware of is that you must remain seated in all areas while you are socializing. This means that you will be expected to return to your tables as soon as you access one of our points of sale and remain seated. Commingling and moving around the venue multiple times between areas has been flagged as one of several key risks by NSW Health.

Children’s play area – For parents, staying seated may pose a challenge with young children and this is one of the reasons why we have made the decision to keep our play equipment closed at this time to avoid any temptation to go outside and play. We hope you will understand that this decision has been made in the name of compliance and the Club playing its part in getting us back to something close to normal as soon as we can.

Sanitising, sanitising and more sanitising – Additional cleaning procedures will be in place. We use hospital grade disinfectant at all times and there will be a very high frequency of sanitisation taking place throughout all areas of the Club.

Facilities available – Patrons will be able to access most facilities whilst at the Club, including Red Sands Bar & Grill, Cowries Café, the Gaming lounge, TAB, Keno, ATM’s and Cash Redemption terminals. At this point in time there is no bingo, darts, raffles or poker and the gym remains closed, but these promotions/facilities will be re-introduced as restrictions allow.

5 Star Rewards Program – will be right where you left off. Your points are still there, and you will accrue points and be able to spend them as you could before This is just a small way we can say thank you and welcome back!

Red Sands/Cowries opening hours – Red Sands Bar & Grill will be open 7 days a week from 11:30am to 2:30pm for lunch and 5:30pm to 8pm and Cowries Cafe will be open 7 days a week from 10am to 9pm.

Barrack Point Holidays – is open again and taking bookings from 1 June.

Lawn Bowls – roll-ups are currently permitted, but you must book with the Club prior to coming in for a roll-up. Any form of organised social bowls or competition bowls is not permitted at this time.

Finally – Finally, we would like to extend a warm welcome back to every member and all of our fantastic staff that we can’t wait to see you from 3 June. Let’s all be patient and work together and we will make re-opening easy and stress free for everyone.

With kind regards from The Board, Management and staff of Warilla Bowls and Recreation Club.

Warilla Bowls & Recreation Club recognises that it has a responsibility in the community to lead by example and fulfil a role of raising awareness and educating staff, members and the community about the benefits and rewards of operating sustainably.

Sustainability translates into a charter to reduce the ecological footprint of the Club, meet community expectations and to effectively reduce the bottom line in the process.

Our Club is an active member of the Illawarra Sustainable Clubs Alliance and has engaged assistance in improving its environmental sustainability performance from Rana Environmental. Rana Environmental provides our Club with guidance to align us towards sustainability as a core business management strategy, so as to realise operational cost savings and reduce our environmental footprint.

The Club has put in place a range of systems to ensure that sustainability is being addressed and reviewed within the Club as well as undertaken initiatives to improve sustainability performance. These include:

Solar PV System

The Club has a 414kW Solar PV system, representing the largest installation on a Club in Australia. The system generates approximately 530MWh of electricity per annum or 25% of the Clubs total electricity demand.

Waste Management

Following participation in the NSW EPA Bin Trim Program, Warilla Bowls & Recreation Club has increased the waste diversion rate by volume from 11% to 26%.

The Club has achieve this outcome by installing a Pulp Master food maceration system that caters for all food waste organics. The material is subsequently injected into farming land to improve soil nutrients and structure. The Club was also successful in receiving $3,100 in funding from the Bin Trim Rebate Program, to install new colour coded recycling bins throughout all operational areas.

The total cost of the waste management system decreased by approximately $29,000 or 41% following the amended waste management system.

Internal lighting and Car Park Lighting

All internal lighting has been upgraded to LED lighting, with the exception of fluorescent lighting that has been upgraded to T5 linear tubes. The Indoor Bowling Green lighting was replaced with units that are 66% more efficient.

Similarly, all car park lighting has been upgraded to LED lighting that is 60% more efficient.

In total, the lighting upgrades have collectively reduced electricity demand by 12%.

Sustainability Matters Project

The Sustainability Matters Project, as supported by the NSW Government’s Climate Change Fund, reduced energy consumption by approximately 7% through the installation of energy efficient lighting, and resulted in water savings of approximately 9% by retrofitting water intensive woks with waterless woks.

Water Tanks

The Club installed water tanks with a combined capacity of 8 x 50,000L. Captured rainwater is utilised to irrigate the Clubs bowling greens and is estimated to accommodate for approx. 30% of the Clubs water demand.

Outcomes

The Club has been maintaining a Resource Consumption Monitoring System since January 2009 that collects consumption data and allows the Club to view improvements and outcomes.

Water, electricity and gas consumption has reduced by 43%, 32% and 4% respectively, equating to a total cost saving of approximately $160,000 per annum if no action to reduce resource consumption had been made.

Testimonials

FIRST TIME AT THE CLUB
Hi guys! We attended your massive Electronic Raffle last night. It was the first time I’ve been to your club! I obviously have been missing out a lot in my life. I praise and applaud the entire staff – welcoming and efficient. The food is amazing and such a wonderful effort for the amount of people you served! I could say I’ll be back because I in fact won a prize and feel lucky, but no! It’s the service, it’s the food, it’s the club. You guys should be proud! What a team! Will see you again soon! 🙂
