Bowl up with team entries

Competitors take a casual approach to last year's friendly bowls competition.

Ocean Grove Bowling Club is planning another friendly bowls competition for businesses, clubs, community groups and interested individuals.

The four-week competition was “very successful” in past years for its entertainment and opportunity to socialise with other members of the community while learning lawn bowls, the club said.

Teams consist of four players – male, female or mixed – but cannot include a member who has played pennant or organised social bowls in the past five years.

“You may enter as many teams as you wish and you do not have to have the same players each week,” the club said.

“Individuals may enter and will be placed in teams (that) can’t find four members.

“Prizes will be awarded each week to winning teams and the premier team at the end of the four week competition will receive the Ocean Grove Voice Trophy.”

The club said the entry cost of $70 per night for each team, or $17.50 per player, included a meal after the game.

“This is a great opportunity for members of the community to have an enjoyable and fun-filled evening.”

Each game begins 6pm on 25 February and 4, 11 and 18 March.

Entries are capped at 28 teams.

Entry forms are available from the bowling club, which has directed any further enquiries to John McConville on 0407 096 811.
