The Whyalla Bowling Club recently completed lawn bowl coaching clinics for Samaritan College Year 10 (over 3 weeks), and Whyalla High Year 9 students (over 4 weeks), 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-ordinators Dave Bull and Graham Pycroft, and the club members who have assisted continue to be impressed with the student's ability, and as per previous years 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 to be available for school students next 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 Club provides all the equipment required for lawn bowl coaching, and encourages the involvement and appreciation of the game with students, and it is a great introduction for them as younger players, to the game of lawn bowls.

The Whyalla Bowling club remains available for function hire, and a game of bowls can be included, with all equipment supplied. Ideal for social and family occasions.
