Marcia Crichton has claimed the open mInor singles championship for 2023 at the Brunswick Head’s Women’s Bowling Club.

In the final, played on Tuesday June 13, Marcia played a relatively new bowler, Pauline Foster.

Marcia is turning 87 in November and has experience on her side, considering she has been a member of the BHWBC for over 30 years. 

She plays bowls at least twice a week, plus every mufti day (the last Sunday of each month) at the club.

‘Marcia has tried for many years to win the open minor singles, so was thrilled to do so this year,’ the club’s publicity officer Kerry Dexter said.

‘And Pauline did a great job to bowl her way into the final,’ she said.

The club’s minor pairs championship will take place this week.
