Bowls NSW Ltd is showing its support for NSW Health and the Sport Super Sunday initiative to help Team NSW beat COVID-19.

Priority appointments for people aged between 16 – 39 from the 12 LGAs of concern are available at Qudos Bank Arena and the NSW Health Vaccination Centre at Sydney Olympic Park and the Vaccination Centre at Macquarie Fields this Sunday 29 August.

NSW Deputy Secretary Susan Pearce has called on everyone who loves to play or watch sport to run up the score this weekend and set a new Super Sunday vaccination record.

“Sporting codes will go head-to-head to compete for the NSW Vaccination Championship Cup, and know that they are doing the best thing for their health, and the health of their community,” Ms Pearce said.

“Previous Super Sundays helped vaccinate more than 10,000 supermarket and food industry workers, construction workers and university students in one day, but now it’s time for you to step up for your favourite team or sport.”

“Our vaccination hubs have bookings available for people aged 16 – 39 in LGAs of concern across Sydney and we want to see sporting clubs rally together and promote vaccinations across their teams.”

“It would be great to see people wearing team colours at our hubs to go into the draw for some great prizes and a chance to prove which code came out the strongest.”

Bowls NSW Ltd Co-CEOs Greg Helm and Anne Johns said that supporting the initiative will go a long way in getting bowlers back on the greens around NSW.

“We are asking our NSW bowling community to go out and take part in the Sport Super Sunday initiative. Particularly those from the LGAs of concern, this is an opportunity for you to help get all bowlers back on the greens as soon as possible,” Co-CEO Greg Helm stated.

Co-CEO Anne Johns added, “This year has thrown up many challenges, but the NSW bowling community are tough, and we encourage bowlers to answer the call and book an appointment. Go out, get vaccinated, and wear your club shirt to represent the lawn bowling community.”

Those aged 16 – 39 who live in Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield or Penrith, should make a booking via the NSW Government website.

You can also book by calling on 1800 57 11 55.

If you can’t make it this Sunday, NSW Health have other vaccination appointments at its centres over the next two weeks.

Every person who gets vaccinated is making a difference and will help get us all back to sport sooner.

By teaming up, NSW Health can vaccinate as many people as possible to stop the spread of COVID-19.
