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.
