Bongaree Bowls Club ‘Beginners’ Bash’ One-Off Knockout 2022 Singles Competition took place recently and was a great success.

This new bowler competition concept has been running consecutively since 2017. It teaches, encourages, promotes and encompasses all aspects of bowls competition to the new bowler.

All of the participants are new members of the Bongaree Bowls Club who have taken up bowls within the last 12 months. There were 30 nominees for the event this year.

Congratulations to the winner, Bob Edwards, and the runner-up, Kim Hagan.

It proved to be a wonderful spectator day, achieved with the support of 15 markers, umpires and senior members.

The focus, friendliness, sportsmanship and professionalism showed the great job our 17 club coaches (yes, 17!) are continually achieving with our bowlers. Thank you to everyone who was involved in the ‘Beginners’ Bash’.
