Bowls club is a family affair
Throughout a bowling week, either at weekend or midweek pennant, the Tatura Bowls Club regularly fields around 16 bowlers who all have family members involved at the club.
In his inaugural year as club president, Roderick Kirby has been joined this year by his son Rod who is in his first year of bowling and is establishing himself as a regular in Tatura’s top side.
Dot Best, a veteran bowler currently with eight Ladies Club Championships behind her, plays regularly with sister Faye Attwood in midweek pennant and joins on weekend pennant with Faye’s husband John Attwood; a vintage Tatura bowler who has been one of the club’s most competitive skippers for many years.
Graham and Joyce Andrus are into their second year of Tatura pennant, having transferred from Pakenham Bowls Club, and are regular participants in club functions.
Life Member Phil Boyd, with club secretary wife Noeleen have had two of their sons, Nick and Brendon, join the Tatura club this year, transferring fromEast Shepparton. The new recruits have been a welcome addition to the Tatura team both playing as skips or thirds in the top division at the club.
Paul Hussey has been a member of Tatura for 22 years and is a tireless worker around the club. His son Jeoff regularly plays in the lower division pennant.
Wife Judy was a regular up until two years ago when ill health had her withdrawing from competitive bowls but she is still a contributor around the club.
Peter LeSueur is a regular skipper and proven top bowler at Tatura, and there is now another LeSueur name featuring as a classy bowler at the club in son Josh.
Josh LeSueur won this year’s Men’s Club Championship at 17 years of age.
Nick Tziros, a regular winner of club events, has son Seth bowling.
He is in just his third year of bowls, has a Division 6 Premiership under his belt and is making remarkable progress in improving his bowling skills.
