SATURDAY SUPER  6. 22nd December   2018

14 teams contested  the 3 games of 6 ends format  , this being the first time we have had the maximum number of entries for this popular competition .

Winning the day were the famous Beagle Boys . Gary Melleuish & John Slingsby  with 3 wins + 24 margin . Good to see John was able to guide Gary back from the dark side after his traumatic experience with Trevor McGuire.

2nd place with 3 wins + 19 margin were Brett Gilligan & Phil Carrett .

3rd place with 3 wins + 9 margin  were Roy Cartledge & Jim Jamison from the Ex Servos club.

The first official pennant trial  is set down for Friday 4th January 2019 starting at 12.30pm . Please tick your availability on the sheet provided . As we will only have 2 grades this year these trials are very important in sorting out our squads for Grades 3 & 5. Here’s  hoping we get as many players as possible for this and future trials .

SATURDAY SUPER  6. 8th December   2018

8 teams contested  the 3 games of 6 ends format  including 2 visitors from the

Ex Servo’s club , Gary Thurston & Peter Smith. winners on the day were Craig McGale & Graham Faull being the only team to win all 3 games.

LATEST UPDATE …..  After 1 draw & 2 losses the dream / nightmare team of Gary , Barry , Larry Melleuish & Trevor ( Maestro ) McGuire didn’t quite handle the pressure , they have decided to swap positions and give it 1 more go. Not a good sign was the sad sight of Trevor leaving early after play and leaving Gary alone at the table looking quite shaken.


Congratulations to Jimmy Hibbert  who was presented with Life Membership of Culburra Beach Men’s Bowling Club . He was presented with the award by another life member , Phil Limbeck . Most popular winners of the day were

Danny Nash & Brendon Hughes  ( Minor Pairs Winners ).

Congratulations  also to Craig McGale  with 3 titles ( Major Singles , Major Pairs & Triples ).

We play all Club Championships at our Club including State Singles and Pairs, Triples, Fours.

All minor championships and mixed championships.

New Bowlers

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.)

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).
