Women’s Bowls Pennant Results – Wins for both Grade 2 & 4
Congratulations to the Greenlees Park women’s pennant players who have won both Grade-2 and Grade-4 pennants last month. Both grades played six pennant games and both grades won all their six games. What an achievement, Well Done!
The region play-offs will be held on Saturday, 15th October for Grade-2, and Saturday, 22nd October for Grade-4. They will compete against the Mitchell District winners, we are hoping for two wins.
Margaret Truesdale & Gladys Barns, our Lawn Bowls Stars
This past Friday, 3rd June Margaret Truesdale and Gladys Barnes competed at Merrylands Bowling Club in the Champion Pairs Event, as winners of the 2021 Club Pairs Competition, after a bye for the match that was due to be played on Thursday at Guilford was received.
The first game at 8.30am on Friday was against South Tamworth, a strong team that recently came 4th in the Women’s State Carnival in the Shoalhaven District, which was held the first week in May. Playing on a synthetic green was a challenge but Margaret and Gladys only went down by 4 shots.
After a light lunch the girls played another strong team, Warilla, from the South Coast. This time it was on grass. Margaret and Gladys lead from the beginning, but skip Gladys moved the jack and went down by 7 shots – DISASTER! They regrouped and won the game by 8 shots.
The match was streamed live by Bowls NSW, with friends and fellow bowlers watching and cheering them on at Briars Sports.
Congratulations Margaret and Gladys on such a great achievement!
