Brunswick Heads Women‘s Bowling Club has won the Tweed Byron District Open Fours Championship playing at home last week.

The winning team included Sherril Pearce (lead), Kerry Dexter (second), Jenny Lofts (third) and Blossom McCormick (skip).

‘We defeated Byron Bay in the first round, then into the semifinal defeating another Byron Bay team, then into the final defeating Condong, which was a very exciting close game,’ publicity officer Kerry said.

‘This is the second year running that we have won the Open Fours. We are now off to compete in the zone carnival in a couple of months’ time at Cabarita,’ she said.

Membership drive

The club is also keen to attract new bowlers to the club after losing members to moving away and ill health.

The club has reduced its membership fees from  $75 to $20 for full membership.

‘People of all ages play. Our Commonwealth Games women gold medallists are aged 27 and 30,’ Kerry said.

The women meet on Tuesday mornings at 9.30am.

Call: Kerry 0497 076 522, Sherril 6685 1001 or Joy 6684 1478.
