Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club News

The undefeated Grade 4 Pennant side after their win against Raymond Terrace on Sunday.


12 MAY

Well, it might be the spate of wet weather, or it might be the change in format keeping bowlers away, but that’s about to change as today we saw a reversal to three-bowl Triples with 38 players participating.

The grass played well considering that we had 25mm of rain the day before a great credit to our greenkeeper Peter.

The winners on a 2-end count-back with 16 points were Gary Wynne, Paul Carter and Col Fossey.

The lucky losers on 17 points were John Payne, John Moore and Mark Hair.

The Garden Eatery voucher was won by Gary Porter.

Our thanks to the Garden Eatery for their support.

15 May

A big weekend for Pennant players with most grades finalising Round 10 of the Newcastle District pennants and then backing up tomorrow to play games previously washed out.

Grade 4 played Beresfield at home just sneaking home by 5 shots 8.5 to 1.5 and 67-62.

Grades 5 and 6 travelled together to Nelson Bay with Grade 5 recording their first win of the season 9.5 to 0.5 and 70-61 and Grade 6 narrowly going down, by 3 shots, to the competition leaders 1-9 and 62-65.

Grade 7 did not play having to provide some reserves for the other teams.

16 May

In the catch-up rounds played today Grade 4 had another close game against Raymond Terrace winning 9-1 and 60-57.

Grade 4, with possibly one more game to play at East Maitland, remain undefeated.

A tremendous effort!

Grade 5 Put in another valiant effort against Karuah going down 0-10 and 53-63.

Grade 6 played away at Stockton and after 63 ends the master board was tied at 53-53.

Stockton won the points 5.5-4.5.

These weekend results will see grades 5, 6 and 7 bow out for the season but there may be required to play another game next week if deemed necessary to determine future gradings.

All Tea Gardens Dolphin sides are supported by First National Real Estate.
