What amazing week we have had on the green with pennant success across multiple grades in both sections.

On the back of our women’s grade 2 & 4 triumphs our men have also booked their ticket to a state pennant after a resounding victory by our super 6’s on Sunday at Narooma. Our boys managed to secure their first game against Malua Bay to set up a grand final against Sussex Inlet where we hit top gear to win convincingly on all rinks. Our boys will now head to Nelson Bay where the state final will be contested from August 17-19, a list will be posted on the notice board for spectators that wish to come and support our boys.

Australian Championships

Australian ChampionshipsWow….
As the sun sets on the most prestigious bowling event ever held in Merimbula, the 2017 Australian Bowling Championships, it is time to reflect on the fantastic team effort that has made this event the outstanding success it is, a success that was several years in the making.
Many people contributed, and I would like to acknowledge and thank each and every one of you.
Most significantly, a massive thank you to Bowls Australia for giving Club Sapphire the opportunity, and to the best bowlers in Australia, for travelling to Merimbula to put on such a magnificent show. Whilst loaded with talent and exceptional skill, the stars of bowls are also very humble, unassuming and a great advertisement for the sport and what it is to be a great Australian.
