The bowls are back

By Garry Lewis

The Warburton Bowls Club is looking forward to another enjoyable and successful pennant season.

Saturday pennant starts on Saturday 6 October with Warburton 1 playing Ferntree Gully 1 away in Division 1 Section 3.

With several players stepping up to the top team, the club is encouraged by the positive form in the recent practice matches.

Warburton 2 steps up to the challenge of Division 3 Section 5 following its premiership success in Division 4 last season.

The side will play Boronia 1 at home.

Warburton 3 (6-a-side Section 4) plays Box Hill RSL 4 away.

With a few new players joining, the club is hopeful of fielding a team each week.

New and beginning players are still encouraged to join the small but friendly club.

Coaching is available from qualified coaches.

The mid-week Tuesday pennant competition (Division 2 Section 4) started last week with Warburton 1 playing Lilydale 2 at home.

The Burras started, well winning all rinks, 76 to 29.

Rink scores were as follows: G. Walsh 22/11; S. Lord 26/8 and R. Zunneberg 28/ 10.

Social bowls continues on Mondays from about noon. New and beginning players are most welcome.

The popular Wednesday night barefoot bowls competition starts on Wednesday 31 October.
