2 teams comprising some quality bowlers fought out todays final .Opening
salvos were fairly even with the first 6 ends , seeing Ricks team lead 6 to 4 .Brendon’s team hit back to lead 11 to 8 after 11 ends. A strong surge took Ricks team to an 18 to 12 advantage at end 18 . Brendon’s team again fought back and at end 23 they only trailed 19 to 21 . Some clutch bowling by Geoff Blackshaw on the 24th end and Peter Johnson leading out on the last end saw Ricks team prevail with a well deserved win . Congrats to both teams for a hard fought final enjoyed by all those who came down to watch today.

There are many social bowls events played throughout the year on weekends; these events are posted on the notice boards at the bowls office
All of our social bowls events are open to all bowlers of all levels; beginners, experienced, men, women, juniors. Visitors are always welcome.
Social bowls are played in mufti (casual clothing, club rules apply) but we ask that suitable footwear to be worn.
We play all Club Championships at our Club including State Singles and Pairs, Triples, Fours.
All minor championships and mixed championships.
New bowlers are always welcome. We will teach anyone. We have 6 male and 1 female accredited coaches. It is best to speak to a coach about learning to play and learning the correct way rather than learning from a friend (who may teach you bad habits.)
2 major tournaments in a year:
Alf Cook Pairs – $2000.00 Prize Money – Mid Week of March
Mixed Pairs are played in September and October midweek.
Any inquiries can be directed to the Bowls Office within the main club which is available on Wednesday and Friday (between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm).
