Churchill Bowls Club

After three seasons of pennant competition in the West Gippsland Bowls Division, the Churchill Bowls Club has taken out the 6th Division Pennant Grand Final which was held at Traralgon Bowls Club on February 29, 2020, with a 10-shot win over Longwarry. This historic win elevates us into the West Gippsland Bowls Competitions 5th division for the 2020/21 season, which commences in October 2020. Although this promotion will require us to increase our team numbers from 8 to 12, we are confident we can field both a 5th and 6th division team for next season.
The club recently conducted its Club Singles and Pairs Championship events with the winner of the Men’s Singles being S. Peter who defeated W. Brown in the final. Winner of the Ladies Singles was S. Turner who defeated G. Turpin in the final. The two Club champions, S. Peter and S. Turner went on to represent the club at the W.G.B.D Championship events which were conducted at the Warragul Bowls Club in January 2020. Both players put in very good performances against higher ranked opponents, however the pressure finally told at the end, with both going down in closely fought games. The Clubs Men’s Pairs Championships were won by C. Thomas and S. Filjak, who overcame a dogged effort by S. Peter and A. Van Den Ham to win an entertaining game. The Ladies Pairs were won by S. Turner and D. Thomas who were just a little too good on the day, defeating G. Turpin and H. Dyson who courageously fought the match out to the end. Congratulations to the winners and to all who participated in these events.
To assist our club in remaining viable and to provide Churchill with a lawn bowls club/venue into the future, we are urgently seeking new, past and current players, interested in joining and playing for the Churchill Bowls Club. We are especially appealing to the generation who are now past playing the more robust sports and would like to play something a little less physical. Once perceived as a game for old fogies, lawn bowls is now being pursued by a younger generation of both genders, who are recognising that lawn bowls is a sport that can be played socially or competitively, requires skill and dexterity and is able to be played all year round. Being a Gippsport Welcoming Inclusive Club, we also offer the opportunity for all diverse members and cultures in our society, the chance to participate and be involved in the sport of lawn bowls. This also applies to people with disabilities who are encouraged to be part of our organisation either as a player, or part of our governance team. Enquiries – D. Thomas Secretary 0407 182 967 or W.
