The Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowling Club was proud of Sheila Riley who has been awarded a certificate and badge from WBNSW (Women’s Bowls New South Wales) for notching up 50 years as a member.

Sheila joined the club in 1965 and has won championship singles, pairs, triples, and fours with the ladies, as well as championships in mixed pairs and fours.

Sheila no longer bowls but still works hard for the club acting as controlling body for pennant and club championships, as well as running the trading table on event days.

Sheila is a great support to all the ladies and is a much-appreciated and valued member of our club.

2019 underway

A very tight game has decided the first championship fours game for 2019 at the Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowling Club last week.

Jenny Andrew, Ilona Pettendy, Sherril Pearce, and Lyn Proudlock defeated Carol McGregor, Fay Parkes (substitute for Maureen Bertoli), Helen McCaffery, and Lorraine McCormick 22–20.

It was a very close game all throughout and on the last end Proudlock’s team were down 19–20 but they played some brilliant bowls to score three points, enabling them to win the game 22–20.

Jenny Andrew has only been a bowler for a few months so this was her first championship win.
