From the 1st to the 3rd of September,  28 teams of ladies competed at the annual Classic Pairs  Tournament.  There were teams from Canberra, Queanbeyan, Sydney, Tathra, Merimbula, Tura Beach as well as representatives from clubs within our local district.

The first day of spring did not let us down, for all three days the sun was shining.  It was wonderful to see our two bowling greens with maximum numbers, full of colour (bowls and uniforms) and the game of bowls being played in great spirit. During these three days, friendships are formed or renewed and while competition is keen, laughter can always be heard.

The format of the tournament over the three days is a total of 5 games of 18 ends of pairs. Typical of our greenkeepers, their preparation of the greens allowed the games to be played in first class conditions.  It was a challenging competition, and the final outcome was not clear until all games had been completed.

The placings for the competition were:

1st Jan Dunscombe & Pam Reynolds
Tura Beach
10 points, margin +66

2nd Olga Geshwend & Yvonne Huddleston
Malua Bay
10 points, margin +33

3rd Lola Wallis & Cherie Dean

5th Joy Scott & Joy Clarke

6th Irene Macdonald & Rose Farrington

Congratulations to all Players!

No competition can be held without support, and thank you goes to our sponsors – Travel Team (Batemeans Bay), Tuross Head Country Club, Tuross Men’s Bowling Club and Estate Wines.

Mention must also be made of the contribution of both our members and members of the men’s club who assisted with donations, umpiring and giving their time to assist with daily preparations and the keeping of the all important scores – thank you to everyone involved.


We would love to see anyone come and join us for a game of bowls at Tuross – come along any Tuesday morning to see what the game is all about.
