Irene Giannikos reports:
The Two Wells Bowling Club had a successful 2020/21 season and congratulations goes to the first Saturday (Open gender) side winning a Pennant.
The side had a hard-fought game, playing at Trinity Gardens against Hope Valley, they won by six shots overall.
The second side played Gawler at Clearview in their grand final and finished a very credible runner-up.
The Wednesday Men’s competition saw the first side making it to the preliminary final and they played Walkerville on their home turf.
This was a seesawing game and Walkerville eventually won overall by five shots.
The Thursday Women’s competition side finished third on the ladder, this division didn’t play finals, however, next year finals will be played in this division.
The third Saturday Open Gender side struggled all year, as did the second Men’s Wednesday side.
The Club’s tournaments have been played and won with a couple of club veterans playing off in the finals of the Men’s Championship singles.
Doug Burford was the victor with Colin Hall the runner up. The Women’s event, with a small pool of eight players, was won by Marilyn Nichols.
Joyce Dunne, who is a relative newcomer to bowls, was the runner up.
In the Prior Family Championship Pairs event, the Devlin “boys”, Phillip and Grant, outplayed Neville Ray and Richard Magiera.
In the Women’s event, Pam Prescott and Shelly Bain were runners up to Marilyn Nichols and Sue Dansie (Sue is also relatively new to the game).
The winners of the Milton Family 100-up event were Ben Smith and Shelly Bain.
The Handicap singles was won by Richard Magiera and the President’s 2 Bowls singles was won by Ben Smith (back to back wins), with another relatively newcomer to bowls, Craig Cahill, the runner up.
Overall, the club has had a very successful year both on and off the field with the new playing surface providing the opportunity to play throughout the winter.
The club is always looking to recruit new players, and if you are interested, call 0417 810 029 for more information.
