Champion of Champion Club Pairs

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.

Consistency Final won for a second time by Louise!

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!

The Kylie Cup

22nd September 2020

Today we held a match day in honour of Kylie Hartley call the Kylie Cup! Kylie was an enthusiastic follower of the ponies so it seemed appropriate that we celebrate her life in this way.

Everyone came dressed for the races and a tab was provided. It was the first of what will be an annual event to pay homage to a lady we all loved.
