Introduction to bowls

Whyalla Bowling Club is currently coaching Samaritan College students from Years 10, 11 and 12, introducing the novice players to the game of lawn bowls.

The coaching has been very popular with the students, as per previous years, with many students showing a natural talent for the game, improving their skills and competiveness through the coaching period.

The Whyalla Bowling Club coaching team are very pleased with the interest shown by the students, their attention to coaching tips, and the overall improvement of all those taking part.

The Whyalla Bowling Club coaching co-ordinator Jeff Fell, Bob Melville the club coach, and the club members who have assisted continue to be impressed with the students ability.

"The Whyalla Bowling Club coaching team are very pleased with the interest shown by the students ..."

As per previous years, they saw a number of students who would do well in more competitive lawn bowls games.

Lawn bowls is a very social game, with concentration and consistency more important than physical strength, and is an ideal game for being involved in sport.

The Whyalla Bowling Club student coaching will continue with other schools through the year, and hopefully after being introduced to the game some of the younger players will continue in the sport, either through night owls or more competitive pennant formats.

The continued sponsorship by Liberty Steel to be used towards student coaching and equipment is very appreciated by the students involved and the members of the Whyalla Bowling Club, and is a boost to the introduction and involvement of younger players to the game of lawn bowls.

The Whyalla Bowling club is available for function hire with a game of bowls included, all equipment supplied.

The club is ideal for social and family occasions.
