Located on Skye Road, the Karingal Bowls Club Canopy, the “Skyedome”, is the newest architectural addition to Melbourne’s bayside suburb of Frankston.
The Karingal Bowls Club Canopy is a single-green canopy, constructed in our popular Hawkesbill (Leaning Arch) design. The membrane has been fabricated with hard-wearing and highly-attractive PTFE
The 1800 sqm canopy has become a focal point for the Frankston community, with construction attracting the attention of the Herald Sun during construction, and the finished product featuring in the world-wide Inside Bowls Magazine in March 2021.
“It’s not uncommon for ‘more senior’ bowlers to be resistant to change – and my fellow members at Karingal were no exception when it came to erecting an all-weather facility. However, now that our magnificent ‘Skyedome’ is complete and we’re bowling day and night in all weather conditions, they are cock-a-hoop and proudly boast how good it is. We reckon it’s perfect and we’ve seen most of them, the Rolls Royce of fabric roof structures, no doubt.”
David Allen, Chairman, Karingal Bowling Club, Vic
