Wangaratta Bowls

Six of Wangaratta Bowls Club’s representative men played in various teams in the Bowen Bowls Club Classic, while three ladies attended the Airlie Beach Opening Day, leaving few members for the field on Sunday.

Roger Mumby, Isobel Wheeler, and Geoff Danvers defeated Theresa Willshire and Deb Retchless. And Kennedy Whitton in the first Sunday match, while Merle Elphinstone, Sue Shearing, and Pat Tracey defeated Bill Myers, Irene Laird, and Greg Colquhoun.

Ladies’ nominations have been called for the Wangaratta Bowls Club competition – an opportunity to gain valuable experience in higher grade bowling - and will close Tuesday, February 21.

The club will be holding Opening Day on Sunday, February 26, and games will start at 10.00am on that day and concluding at 12.30pm followed by a light lunch and presentations.

Wangaratta expects visitors from other Bowls clubs across the region. A sign-in sheet will be available at the door.
