2021 Veterans Final

Roger Twells, Jim Phillips, Stewart Duncan & Ross McIntyre.

Not to mention Covid lock downs and weeks of rain and player unavailability, the Final of the UBMBC 2021 Veteran Pairs was played in glorious conditions today (23/4/2022). 

Ross & Stewart got out to a handy 7 - 0 lead and were drawing very well. Roger & Jim steadied their nerves and gradually got into the game. This proved to be a marathon of a game, running for over 4 hours. It was a sensational, high quality final, with Jim and Roger holding just a 3 shot lead going into the last end. Roger & Jim eventually winning by 17 - 15....

UBMBC 2022 Major Singles Championship Final

The Final of the UBMBC 2022 Major Singles Championship was played this afternoon (13/3/2022). After a three day break from all of the rain, we had a shower at the start of play, which delayed the game by 15 minutes.
Despite the rain and the green slowing down a bit, Shane and Jim played great draw bowls, throughout the game. Jim was a bit slow getting off the mark, but found his length to make this a great contest.
The game was closer than the final score suggests, but credit to both players. Congratulations to Jim Phillips on making his first Major Singles Final and even bigger Congratulations to Shane Waddell, who played in his third final in three years, including winning back to back UBMBC Major Singles Championships.

2021 Minor Pairs Final (16/01/2022)


(L to R) Vic Gauci & Ian Jarratt and Lee Cribbs & Tom Burgmann

The Final of the Umina Beach 2021 Minor Pairs was played at Club Umina this afternoon, between the unbackable favourites Tom Burgmann & Lee Cribbs against the 'Mighty Mites' Ian Jarratt & Victor Gauci.
Ian & Vic got out to an early 8 - 0 lead, before Tom & Lee recovered to get back into the game. There were some great bowls played on quite a quick green, with a gentle breeze. Each team picked up 1 and 2 shots, but Ian & Vic maintained their lead throughout the game and only went behind on one end. Tom & Lee held in there and kept digging away, but dropped 4 shots near the end of the game and were playing catch up after that.
Ian Jarratt & Vic Gauci eventually winning this tight contest 19 - 16. Congratulations to all four players...
