BOWLERS LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES
Australind’s own State-level bowler Linda Warburton paid a visit to Harvey Bowling Club last week to impart some wisdom to up and coming women bowlers.
Mrs Warburton said novice players from nearby clubs were invited to the coaching session to learn good technique.
“We invited girls from Harvey, Brunswick, Binningup and Waroona to come and basically learn how to bowl before they get into any bad habits,” Mrs Warburton said.
“They were all new bowlers, so new-ish bowlers that have been bowling for under two years basically.”
Mrs Warburton praised the group’s enthusiasm for learning and said they would all be an asset to their respective clubs.
“You can actually pick up some of their faults early, or something they are doing wrong before they actually get started into the nitty-gritty of playing pennants.
“Thanks to Harvey Bowling Club, the greens were beautiful and it was great to come here and do the course.”
Mrs Warburton recently returned from the national Bowls Premier League Cup in Queensland as part of the only all-women side club triples competition.
She said her team didn’t have much success at the competition but was happy to show support for her friends in the Perth Suns who made the finals.
