Tuross Head Women’s Bowling Club Pennant News
Both Division 2 and 4 sides played at Malua Bay yesterday, Thursday 15th September in the 4th round of the 2022/23 Far South Coast District Pennant .
With one round to go, it is apparent from the ladder that the Pennant 4 ladies are the victors of their competition with 14 points, and will now progress to the District playoff, which is planned to be played at Tuross Head Country Club next month. They will travel to Bermagui next Tuesday for the final match. This will be a great opportunity for the ladies to play on a different surface at the Bermagui Club, where it is an artificial green.
We congratulate the ladies and wish them well at the next level. This is the first time that several of the ladies have played in pennant and from all accounts, they have really enjoyed both the social experience of meeting many fellow bowlers from the various clubs, whilst also enhancing their skills at competition level bowls. They were ably lead by experienced skips, Jenny Madden and Carol Williams. It is evident that lawn bowls at Tuross is in a very healthy state with several new lady members who are not only very enthusiastic about their bowls, but are also developing aptitude as skilled bowlers. We have to thank Jim Madden, who has generously coached most of these ladies this year. This is giving us a good pool of bowlers to select from for future events.
The 2’s played the Malua Bay Blue side who are the current leaders of the competition. We had a very tight game against the ladies winning with an overall score of 35 to 34. However, they have had three wins to our one and cannot be beaten. We play the Malua Bay Green side at home on Tuesday, which will be a playoff for second position.
It was exciting to be able to use and master the new electronic scoreboards that have been installed at Club Malua.
The winners of the 3’s is evident also, with Dalmeny on the top of the ladder. Their competition against Narooma and Malua Bay will also conclude next Tuesday.
