QLD BLIND BOWLERS

The Queensland Blind Bowlers’ Association (QBBA) provides opportunities for competition and recreation for people who are blind or have severe vision impairment, through participation in the sport of lawn bowls.

The QBBA caters for players from beginners to international representatives, all of whom are assisted by a dedicated band of volunteers and directors.

Players have the opportunity to participate in the annual Bowls Queensland’s Multi-Disability State Championships. The most successful players may then compete at the Australian Open.

The QBBA also selects a team to compete in the annual National Championships conducted by the Australian Blind Bowlers’ Association.  ABBA selects players to represent Australia at international events.

The QBBA meets on most Monday mornings at the Geebung Bowls Club at 21 Thompson Street, Geebung.  The club is easily accessible by train and bus services.

Many members travel by train to Geebung Rail and walk to the Club. We are especially appreciative to Brisbane City Council for upgrading the disabled access along the public pathways and also upgrading facilities within the club grounds.

Meeting Times:

  • Summer: Morning tea at 0830, play 0900 to 1200, lunch at 1230
  • Winter: Morning tea at 0900, play 0930 to 1230, lunch at 1:00pm
