The second half of the bowls season for the Yarra Junction Bowls club has commenced.

The concern over the increasing Covid numbers and how this would affect ongoing competition plans was never far away, however with great care and good planning the club has had a busy week with two pennant games completed, Friday nights Barefoot Bowls for the community resumed and club singles championships are underway.

The first midweek game was played away at Lilydale and although an away game win looked possible early in the day with all rink scores being very close, Lilydale gradually pulled away and were the eventual winners by 63 to 48 overall.

The weekend home game against Yarra Glen was played in good spirit with ends chopping and changing regularly with some great shots played by all. The morale boosting win went the Eagles

way with 101: 56 being the final score.

Fine weather ensured a successful recommencing of Barefoot Bowls on Friday nights at the club. The first turnout of the year saw many first time bowlers having a great night out and those who had been before came back for more. Barefoot Bowls is on every Friday evening from 6.30pm over summer. It’s a local family event that can be enjoyed by everybody.

New members with or without bowling experience are always welcome to join us for social bowls on Thursdays afternoons anytime from 1pm through to 7pm.
