Clubs seek new bowlers

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Fin­ley Bowls Club and Fin­ley RSC Bowls are com­ing to­gether to en­cour­age peo­ple to come and try a new sum­mer sport.

As the sum­mer bowls sea­son is fast ap­proach­ing, what bet­ter way to try a new sport then with beer, bar­be­cue and bowls?

Bowls Aus­tralia is en­cour­ag­ing any­one in Fin­ley or sur­round­ing dis­tricts to come along and give it a go.

North-east Vic­to­rian re­gional bowls man­ager Josh Thorn­ton said bowls isn’t a sport only for the el­derly like most peo­ple think.

‘‘There is a per­cep­tion that bowls is a sport for old peo­ple but that sim­ply isn’t the case,’’ he said.

‘‘Look at me; I’m 36, I’ve played bowls since I was 13 and I love play­ing it.

‘‘We have a motto which is ‘the game is for all ages’.

‘‘Bowls does have a com­pet­i­tive side and a strong so­cial as­pect.

‘‘Ev­ery week, you’re meet­ing new peo­ple or catch­ing up with old rivals but it’s a so­cial at­mos­phere.

‘‘The play­ers are friendly and great to have a drink with af­ter­wards.’’

Come and try ses­sions will be run­ning on Tues­day nights al­ter­nat­ing be­tween the two clubs - Fin­ley BC Tues­day October 10 and 24; Fin­ley RSC Tues­day October 17 & 31. Start­ing time is 5.30pm.
