Innisfail Ladies Bowls


ON Monday, despite the inclement weather, it was decided to go ahead with the Pennants’ game against Atherton.

The game was able start sooner than anticipated, due to the early arrival of the Atherton ladies.  However, one shower of rain meant play was interrupted for 20 minutes.

The new green drains so effectively that bowlers were able to play only 10 minutes after the rain stopped.

The great news was Innisfail’s convincing defeat of Atherton!

On Wednesday, the final of the Ladies B Grade Singles was played between Ann Rule and Dell Steve.

Again, the amazing draining qualities of the green were proven, as a heavy shower at 1.00pm was no deterrent to play.

In a close game, both were initially tied on 23, and then Rule won four shots, and so defeated Steve by 27 – 23.

In the Social Game of Triples, Eileen Hamann, Sue Morrison, and Marcia Ryall defeated Bev Anderson, Helen Paterson, and Lyn Stevenson, 18 – 10.

So, bowlers should no longer be put off by the threat of rain as the Innisfail green is totally playable in wet conditions.

It has been a busy couple of weeks for Innisfail Ladies as they have participated in mixed pairs, TFNQ Ladies pairs and club bowls.

In the second round of the Innisfail Ladies Open Singles, Pam Anderson defeated Helen Paterson, 25 – 17.

Eileen Hamann is to play Maisie Smith, and then Pam Anderson is to play Lyn Stevenson, so more close games are expected.

In Social Games last week, Eileen Hamann, Ann Rule, Joan Atkinson, and Jan Dunn defeated Diana O’Brien, Sue Morrison, Marcia Ryall, and Dianne Wheeler, 13 – 9.

Innisfail ladies have nominated for the Women’s Northern Challenge to be played at the Suburban Bowls Club in Townsville in July.

Innisfail hosted this competition very successfully in 2019.
