The Australia based Henselite is the number one producer of bowls and bowls accessories. Viltalis has included this manufacturer’s products in its product range. Viltalis has been Henselite’s exclusive dealer since its founding in the nineteen seventies. This enables you to play bowls in the Netherlands with world class products.
William D. Hensell was the first to replace wooden bowls with rubber bowls in 1918. In doing so, he laid the foundations for the sound family owned company Henselite. Together with his son Raymond W. Hensell, Hensell developed the first plastic bowl in 1930. This innovative design means the bowl will keep its exact shape in various different weather conditions.
Today they are still just as passionate about bowls and making the most accurate bowls in the world. Each bowl which comes out of their Melbourne factory is a result of highly-tuned precision engineering.
As the game of lawn bowls has changed over the years, so too has Henselite. What started out as a small family business making one style of lawn bowl, has now turned into a company which makes bowls to suit the local conditions wherever you are in the world and supplies clothing, bags and accessories for the complete bowler.
Now overseen by the 4th generation of Hensells, Henselite is the biggest manufacturer and distributor of Lawn Bowls worldwide, has won 3 Australian Export Awards and has been inducted into the Helms Foundation Hall of Fame in the U.S.A. for outstanding achievement in Lawn Bowls.
Henselite is not resting on its laurels. Bowls continues to change. As a new generation of bowlers discovers the excitement of this great sport while adapting when, where and how it is played to meet the modern lifestyle, Henselite will continue to create products which suit the twenty-first century bowler, but also carry on the company's tradition of reliability, quality and precision.
