Women’s Major Singles Final:

The Ladies of Merewether Bowling Club are unstoppable this year! Nervous energy seems to be the key for one of Merewether’s longest serving lady bowling members, Colleen Hogg, as she defeated new-comer Hillary Jenkins in a nail-biting match! The pair were neck and neck right up to the 20th end before Colleen harnessed those nerves to take out the game, 25 – 16. Congratulations to both lovely ladies! Merewether Bowling Club is lucky to have such talented & gracious Women representing us!
