Gina O’Reilly won the Women’s Major Singles this year on Sunday 13th June against Sharon Scarcella. What an amazing match! Both women were on 23 at the last end when Gina knocked Sharon’s 3 possible winning bowls away and took the jack up to her own. The excellent game was neck and neck and a wonderful spectator event. Well done to 1st & 2nd place in Singles Final 2021!
Great news! At the State Carnival Clovelly came 2nd in their division which was an amazing accomplishment! Well done teams! Carmel’s team had five wins and then lost one by two points. Gina’s team had four wins and two draws. The weather was perfect.

This event was held at Merrylands and Guildford bowling Club 4-5 March 2021
Carmel Sowden and Gina O’Reilly represented Clovelly Women’s Bowling Club at Guildford Bowling Club in this State Competition.
Once the girls negotiated M1, M4 , James Ruse Drive and Parramatta Rd and every back street to get to Guildford the girls will find driving to Clovelly a pleasure.
The format was sectional, with the winner of each section proceeding into the knock out rounds.Carmel and Gina played exceptional bowls against highly skilled players from Killara Belrose and Munmorah.
Unfortunately Carmel and Gina did not go through to the knock out round.
The experience gained from playing in state level competition is in valuable and both girls enjoyed the chance to play at this level.
What a fantastic final we saw! It was neck and neck all the way through with both ladies: Louise Baldwin and Judith Staunton fighting it out shot for shot. Louise reached the magic 150 before Judith but the win was only about 10 point ahead!
The two wonderful players showed the considerable crowd what can be achieved with practice, concentration and grit. No one will forget this match for a long time!
