Byron Bay Bowling Club’s seventh grade pennant side has won through to the state championships after winning the zone playoffs last weekend, while the third grade side missed out after losing their final by two points.
Playing at East Lismore seventh grade had an all-the-way win over Wooli and then a close tussle with Bonalbo/Casino before running away to win by 19 shots.
They have earned a trip to the central coast in mid-August for the state play offs.
Third grade went to Ballina RSL who defeated McLean before Sunday’s game at Ballina Cherry Street, which they lost by two popints.
‘To have our only two sides from the club make it to district and perform so well at zone is a great club effort and they deserve a pat on the back,’ club member Syl Reid said.

Bulla is having a great season with wins at club, district and zone levels. He and Jim Clark are off to State Senior Pairs in September.
