by Billy Johnson

Bowls NSW is pleased to announce that Lee Stinson has been appointed to the role of Executive Manager – Bowls, confirming recent announcements made online. 

Lee comes into the role with considerable experience across the bowls and construction industries, having worked in management positions focused on creating and delivering programs that improve business performance.

Lee has been involved in lawn bowls for over 30 years, developing a strong passion for the game as well as extensive knowledge and understanding of the sport at an operational level. After taking up the sport at the age of 7 in his hometown of Blayney, Lee has spent most of his bowling career playing at the highest level at clubs in country regions and is confident that his understanding of clubs in regional areas will assist him in his role. “As many of the membership base would know, country areas face different challenges to those in the highly populated areas. Many regional and rural towns rely on their Bowling Club as a major hub for community events, so it is vital that they can remain prosperous for many years to come.”

Bowls NSW CEO Tim Rowe is thrilled to have Lee on board as the Executive Manager – Bowls, noting that he was a standout candidate amongst an impressive list of applicants. “Lee brings a wealth of knowledge and experience into the role which will allow him to build an excellent rapport with our membership. Lee will be an asset here at Bowls NSW and I look forward to welcoming him into the team.” 

Lee is eager to start in his role, where he will be responsible for leading and governing the delivery of the sport of bowls in New South Wales and to drive Bowls NSW as the leader of bowls across Australia. “I am really looking forward to working in the sport that I am so passionate about. As well as getting the opportunity to work with our sport’s great volunteers in all Zones, Districts and Regions of the state. In my time playing the sport there has never been more opportunities and events to be able to compete in so it is an exciting time to come on board and join a fantastic and enthusiastic team.”

Lee begins his role at Bowls NSW in mid-May 2023.
