Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club
Monday 10 April: Bi -monthly meeting was held with a good attendance. Congratulations to Lorraine Harvey, Lynne Green, Kayelene Pearson and Robyn Beaumont for district trial selections.
Great to see Wendy Jones back at bowls.
Kayelene Pearson and Robyn Beaumont are bowling in the NSW Indoor Singles 29 April to 4 May, wishing you both good results.
Tuesday 11 April: Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club Pennant Teams had home games.
Grade 2 played Fingal Bay and Grade 3 were bowling against Nelson Bay Red.
The north-westerly to south-westerly wind gusts of 25-30kms/hr did prove a challenge for most bowlers.
Good wins to both grades this week Grade 2 gaining 5 points and Grade 3 4.5 points, well done ladies.
Thanks to Francis Betar and Pam Gilchrist for preparing morning tea, your hard work is much appreciated.
Social bowls played two games of fours the winners were Dianne Kiss, (playing lead, “swinger”), Dorothy Thompson and Jill McBride and the other winners were Bev Dunn, Veronica Conaghan, Lynda Richards and Deyonne Page.
Once again, thanks Carol Hayden and Margaret Smith for organising social bowls.
Thursday 13 April: Social bowls was cancelled. Thanks to heavy showers of rain overnight the green looked more like a swimming pool than a bowling green.
The Grade 3 Pennant team were supposed to be playing Soldiers Point at home but their game was transferred to Soldiers Point as they have undercover facilities.
Unfortunately not a good result for the Grade 3 players with one game drawn and a loss in the other resulting in 0 points. The Grade 2 team headed off to Alder Park and the result here was a winning one with Tea Gardens adding 4.5 points to their tally.
The next home Pennant game will be the 27 April play commencing 9:30am with two trial ends.
Sunday bowls will resume following Easter, on 23 April.
Bowlers from Duke of Wellington Hotel New Lambton will be visiting and bowling with the Sunday bowlers on this date. Play commences 10:00am, money to be paid prior to 9:30am. Should be a fun day.
