The Valley Motors sponsored Men's Triples Championship Final was played today. The two teams participating were Chris Pritchard - Joe Pfeifer - Bob Newitt playing Kevin Baker - Col Linton (standing in for Bruce Wilson) and Col Hebblewhite. The Hebblewhite team got off to a great start scoring four on the first end then racing to a nine one lead after six ends. The Newitt team made a mini comeback to be trailing seven to twelve after twelve ends. The match was tit for tat until the Hebblewhite team scored another four on the seventeenth end to go out to a nineteen to nine lead. The Hebblewhite team then put the screws on winning five of the last six ends to be leading thirty two to ten after twenty three ends. With two ends to play the match was called as the Newitt team could not catch their opposition. Congratulations to Kevin Baker - Col Linton (Bruce Wilson) and Col Hebblewhite for once again being the Club Triples Champions Commiserations to Chris Pritchard - Joe Pfeifer and Bob Newitt. Thank you once again to Valley Motors for making this event possible.

HISTORY OF GLOUCESTER WOMEN'S BOWLING CLUB

 

On the 23 July 1952, 21 ladies met at the Gloucester Bowling Club to form the first ladies committee. Mrs W Dignam was unanimously elected President, Vice Presidents were Mrs Carson and Mrs V West, Secretary was Mrs N Bates, Treasurer Mrs Creagh.

 

At this time the ladies were playing bowls with the men’s Club and were assisting them in providing amenities for the Club by holding several fund-raising functions and helped by catering whenever requested by the men’s club.

 

The women didn’t have uniforms and played in tennis frocks and coloured socks for two years. In a very short time by February 1953 Gloucester Women’s Club had 37 registered bowlers with the New South Wales Women’s Bowling Association.

 

Today the Club is thriving with 35 registered playing members, 7 social Members and 1 associated member and nine of these registered members have been acquired in the past two years. This is a great achievement considering a lot of country clubs are struggling to remain viable in a changing world. Thanks to a proactive and nurturing Committee and membership base we have been able to achieve this enviable result.

We will continue our membership drives and orientation days in 2021 with enthusiastic vigour welcoming all into the fold.

 

The Gloucester Women’s Bowling Club holds its annual Gala Day in July or August each year. This carnival has been very successful particularly in the last couple of years especially with the return of the grass green, enabling up to 28 teams to participate.

 

Our hospitality and reputation for good and generous home-style cooking entices a lot of return players from far and wide.

 

The ladies’ bowls day is Wednesday and is mufti unless you are participating in a competition match. All visitors are most welcome. Morning tea is served at 9 am, names in by 9 am and commencement of play is 9.15 am.

 

Gloucester ladies also participate in district Pennants and were successful in 2018 with a grade 5 Pennant Flag.

 

Mixed bowls is played on Saturday morning commencement of play is 9.30 am in uniform, once again we would welcome anyone to join us on the green for great bowling and good companionship.
