Bruny Bowls Club participates in the interclub Pennants Competition administered by Southern Tasmania Bowls Association (STBA). During the 2016/17 season (October March) Bruny will compete in Division 2. Results will appear below as the season progresses.



Bruny vs St. Johns Park

Bruny defeated St Johns Park 12 2 (82 to 73 shots)


There were a few changes from last season. President Brian welcomed new players Don and Nola Taylor and Kim Dudley as new members of our playing group. We are now playing 21 ends instead of 25 ends and we played St Johns Park for the first time in 18 years after they moved to Division 2 after playing in Division 1 last season.

It was obvious from the start of the game that we were up against a team of very experienced bowlers. Even though their own green at the moment is slow and damp they had no trouble adapting to our synthetic green.

It was a closely fought game throughout with St J P being ahead on all rinks with only 4 ends to go. Somehow our players rallied and in increasingly windy conditions we managed to get ahead on three rinks for an over-all win. That win put us on second spot on the Div 2 ladder.

The weather was unusual the warmest day for months at 26 degrees and strong, blustery wind that created havoc with the tents erected next to the hall for the Bird Festival.

Our best performing Four was that of Brian, Max, Martin and Gary which won by 6 shots. Well done!
