As a result we are continuously attempting to introduce new product offerings to deal with the changing needs of society. Forty/40 40 Twilight Bowls is aimed at helping bridge the gap between social bowls and pennant. It is a way of helping draw new participants and people into the sport. We are hoping that these new members will help clubs financially at present and will also be the key to clubs surviving in the future. Just as Twenty/20 Cricket has seen an injection of fun and further excitement to the established Test, Shield, and limited-over formats, Forty/40 is a fast-paced exciting game of bowls that we hope will appeal to all demographics. We have found that the high percentage of people in the generation X and Y demographics (20-46) are time poor, seeking stress relief and entertainment. Forty/40 caters perfectly to these attributes. It has been designed to take only two hours, in which participants will be offered a meal and have an opportunity to socialise with friends and meet new people. Forty/40 incorporates two sets of six ends of triples, with a set taking around 40 minutes each. Forty/40 has also seen an introduction of 'power plays' to bowls and rotation of positions within each triple. This new package has been very well received during its trials. The Development Team along with RVBA and VLBA are both aware and excited that clubs are extremely eager to introduce the Forty/40 product into their clubs program portfolio. However, after speaking to Bowls NSW, Bowls SA and Bowls New Zealand, who all have experi- ence implementing new programs, it appears that we would be doing an injustice to the sport of bowls if we made the product available now. Forty/40 still needs to undergo stringent testing and receive full support of the bowls community before being introduced. As a result Forty/40 will be trialled and critiqued at several clubs this season, and will be made available to all metropolitan and regional clubs as soon as possible, but no later than for the begin- ning of the 2010-2011 season. Forty/40 Bowls will be an extremely exciting con- cept that I hope all clubs will embrace next season. Kate Benton
