ShonaMcFarlane Bowls Nov18 1

ShonaMcFarlane Bowls Nov18 3

The weather was a bit chilly outside, but that didn’t matter to bowlers attending the Ryman bowls clinic held at the fabulous indoor Naenae bowls arena yesterday.

There was a good turnout of bowlers from Shona McFarlane village in Lower Hutt, and they were ready to learn new tips and tricks from Gayle Melrose, Blackjack’s Commonwealth Games National Assistant Coach and Auckland/Counties-Manukau Coach Developer, Margaret Davies.

Some of the players were experienced club members but were still willing to get some professional advice to give them the edge in their game.

Some were newbies to bowls and keen to get the right action from the start.

Watch out this season for the Shona teams – they’ll be on top of their game and ready to let the good times roll!
