Wangaratta’s Come & Try day a great success
By Penny Warren
It was fantastic to see 25 budding bowlers take over the green at Wangaratta Club on Saturday, November 13 to try out the game of bowls. Coach Penny Warren welcomed the visitors, gave them a short introduction and explanation of the game before heading onto the covered green.
Players of all ages ranging from 8 to 80 enjoyed a fun afternoon with Wangaratta members who offered their experience and advice.
It was great to see the visitors’ enthusiasm for the game and their eagerness to improve with every bowl. After a few practice ends and with club members’ help, they participated in a short game followed by afternoon tea and a chat about the afternoon.
The consensus of the group was that it was a fun afternoon in a friendly atmosphere and afternoon tea was great. There were lots of laughs and some competitiveness during the game. It is indeed hopeful that they will return to the club in the future and consider playing more regularly.
Thanks to our visitors for coming and having a go, and our members for taking them under their wings and helping to provide a fun afternoon. That is what it is all about, enjoying the game.
