The Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowling Club has won the 2023-24 Tweed Byron District Women’s Bowling Association (TBDWBA) State Fours Championship.

The team of Kerry Dexter, Blossom McCormick, Sherril Pearce and Jenny Andrew took on Cabarita Beach in the semi-final on Wednesday, August 24 at the Ocean Shores Club.

It was a closely contested game up until the 16th end, but from there the Brunswick team powered to success winning 23-15.

In the afternoon they played the final against Pottsville. In the first half of the game Brunswick was trailing behind, but on the 14th end they scored a five-shot win, which marked the beginning of their journey to a 21–16 victory.

Next stop for the Brunswick winners is the State Regionals at Yamba in December.

Blossum, Kerry and Sherril were also named TBDWBA State Triples runners up, earlier this month.
