2020 Minor Singles Championship Final


It was a great afternoon for bowls, with the sun shining, when Jim Phillips became the 56 winner of Umina's Minor Singles on 12th September 2020. Grant Watson played well after a wobbly start. Losing 7 shots on the 1st 2 ends, he recovered to get himself back in the game. The score was neck and neck throughout, with Jim just managing to maintain a small lead, until the end. The final score 31-22. Congratulations Jim.

2020 Major Singles Final

Glen Simington & Shane Waddell. 

Glen Simington became Umina's 58th Major Singles champion on Sunday 19th July 2020. After a great game of bowls. Glen managed to come from behind to beat Shane 33-25. Shane had lead from the start and clung to a slender lead the entire game, but Glen had saved his best until the last few ends, when he finally drew level at 25-25. From then on, there was no holding Glen back, as he drew some cracking shots to finish the game with a 3 on the final end. A well deserved win.
