Norlane Bowling Club members Alison Devlin and Maureen Riley would like to see more women join their ranks as the club continues to grow.
Alison has been bowling for about 12 years, following her late father to the club. Over the years she has played up to three times a week and now represents the club in Saturday pennant.
“I like the challenge of the game with all the elements coming at you,” Alison said. “It’s a game that’s easy to learn but hard to master. I’m still trying to master it.”
Maureen is a social member and has found the bowling club a good place to meet people after recently moving to the area. She enjoys the friendship of the Friday night social functions and watching the bowls on competition days.
Newcomers are always welcome, whether they want to play bowls at a competitive level, have a social roll or access the facilities to socialise.
The club, in St George’s Road, has teams playing in Saturday pennant competition, while mixed social bowls are played at the club every Tuesday and Thursday from 1pm. Coaching is also available for members.
Socially, happy hour is held every Friday from 4.30pm and the club facilities are also available for hire. For more information phone 0478-768-598.
