Melville - Mt Pleasant merger likley

September 17, 2016
At the Mt Pleasant Bowling Club members meeting last Thursday, it was decided the club will most likely enter into an in principle agreement that will see them likely to merge with the Melville Bowling Club.

A new clubhouse will be built on Tompkins reserve which will now become a sporting hub that will include Rugby and cricket and other sports we are not aware of at the moment.
How many greens and what type are yet to be decided but early indications are two indoor surfaces of either carpet or synthetic and one outside surface that is yet to be deciced if it will be grass or synthetic/carpet

Team lists

Rules revised for bad behaviour

September 14, 2016
The attached law has been now adopted Australia Wide, now if a player infringes badly enough, the Umpire can award an 8 against the team, and on a second offence, award the game.
In a team game, the whole team could be wiped out if one player gets warned, then another player from that team arked up and started verbal abuse etc.

Thanks to Stan Meale


Kelvin Kerkow to play for Sth perth

September 13, 2016
We have been informed that the newly promoted Premier League side Sth Perth will hold a night game on a Friday night in the second round of the upcoming season against Doubleview in late October.

It is not unusual as both clubs have often played night games against one and other. What is unusual and a first in W.A is Kelvin Kerkow, arguably the best player in Australia over the past 15 years will be in Perth to conduct four coaching clinics.

He has been selected to represent Sth Perth as a marquee player for this game which in turn will add huge interest and bring spectators to the match. It is evident that Sth Perth sees this as a promotional opportunity by securing the services of Kerkow who will be conducting one of the four clinics at Sth Perth before the night game.

It is not unusual to see East Coast Clubs acquiring the services of marquee players for pennant games, in fact, it has been happening for some years.

Rules regarding residential qualifications that previously applied are a thing of the past these days.

Marquee players are required to fill in a player form that allows them to play in three games a season for one club.

There will be some who don't agree that marquee players should be involved in pennant matches.

But we need to look at the positives of the Sth Perth initiative especially with a player such as Kerkow and his standing in the sport

Aus Indoor singles

August 26, 2016
Congratulations to Jeremy Henry the new Aus Indoor sets play Champ and his 2nd win in the event 11-2, 9-8, commiserations to Curtis Hanley who pushed two stars of the game to the limit.

August 25, 2016
Who shot the Sherriff ? Curtis Hanley did when he won this morning's game against Aron Sherriff 6-5, 9-9, he will play Jeremy "King" Henry.
It wasnt all that long ago when our own Lance Strahan played Henry in the Aus Indoor sets play final, Henry won that final with the very last bowl of the game drawing to the ditch with four feet between Strahan's bowl and the ditch.

Scores from BowlsAus


Some bad news for those who thought we would be receiving a live televised broadcast of the finals that was streamed thru the internet like we had last year, they will be disappointed to learn they will have to wait to see it on SBS over the next few weeks.

Surely if the camera's are going to be there, why not go live? Not much interest in watching any sporting event if you are aware of who won before a replay of the event..

What do our visitors think ?

BowlsWA go it alone and sponsor the Australian Premier League series

August 9, 2016
BowlsWA will sponsor W.A's participation in the annual BPL (formerly known as the APL) Fox television program due to the lack of a primary sponsor.

We are asking visitors to this site to tell us their feelings as to whether or not BowlsWA should be paying this fee on behalf of WA Bowlers......


Best wishes

August 19, 2016
I congratulate the selectors on the side. The inclusion of Robbie Ball will add a great deal of stability to the backend while the front end looks solid.
I wish all the boys great success and I think the side will perform extremely well.
Fred Holt

I sure hope they do the business for it is a long time overdue and hope they can bring home the bacon

Stirling Bowling Club incentive scheme

August 11, 2016
As the Stirling Bowling Club prepare for the new season starting in late October, they have announced to their members an excellent incentive scheme for the players in their Premier League side for the 2016-17 season.

They will reward the highest winning rink each Saturday with $400 to be shared equally for their endeavours

Individual players have been sponsored in the past, so I must commend the Club through their sponsor Mandoon Estate that they are giving the rank and file player an opportunity to a share of cash incentives for each pennant game.

The 2016-17 season will see the end of the traditional 18 game season. The following year the 2017-18 season will see all grades play a fourteen game plus finals pennant season.

Stirling who regained PL status for this coming season has timed the incentive scheme for the players just right in their attempt to remain in the PL.

Mandoon wins best wheat beer award

August 8, 2016
Congratulations to Allan Erceg and the Homestead Brewery after winning the Cryer Malt Trophy for best wheat draught named Kaisers Choice at the Perth Royal Show.
I must say it is one of the highlights for Sherro when I visit the Mandoon Homestead Brewery to sit down and enjoy a pint of Kaisers Choice Wheat Beer.
It is simply the best and little wonder the Homestead Brewery won the award.
If any of our visitors are intending to go to Mandoon Wine Estate and Home Brewery try Kaisers Choice, you are sure enjoy it as much as I have
