Byron Bay Bowling Club’s men’s triples pennant team has qualified to compete in the grade two zone finals after winning five of its six matches in the local series.

In the last round of the competition, Byron Bay’s number two side travelled to Ocean Shores, having already secured the series after winning five straight rounds.

They missed out on the clean sweep by just one point going down 58–57.

The team included: Pat Bigg, Dan Foster and Louis and Paul Clark.

‘To win the section is an outstanding effort. We now travel to Yamba on May 7 to play the Zone final,’ club member Pam Scarborough said.

‘A win there would definitely cause a huge celebration as the Byron Bay club, in conjunction with Cherry Street Bowling Club (Ballina), have been awarded the honour of holding the state finals for grade two at their clubs in June.

‘So every breath is being held for the result in May’.

Byron Bay Bowling Club is celebrating their centennial year in 2023 and hosting the state finals will kick start the celebrations that will include a reunion day.

‘If we can win, what a great centennial year that would be,’ Pam said.
