Serena Bonnell finalist in QLD Sport Awards
Congratulations to Right at Home Para-Jackaroo Serena Bonnell on being selected as a finalist in the Queensland Sport Awards Athlete with a Disability.
Serena was recently awarded the Bowler with a Disability title from Bowls Australia and has enjoyed a scintillating year on the greens across district, state, national and international levels. On the national arena, an Australian Open women’s fours silver medal was a highlight, while on the international scene, Serena represented the Jackaroos with distinction during the UK Tour, Trans Tasman Test Series and her year culminated with a silver medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, as the first non-visually impaired women to win a para-bowls medal for Australia alongside fellow Queenslander Cheryl Lindfield. Serena is unquestionably a trailblazer and one of the biggest advocates for para inclusion and the sport of bowls more generally, vigorously promoting the inclusive nature of the sport and leading the way for para women.
The 27th annual Queensland Sport Awards will be held on November 24 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
