It was Pammy Chalmers pictured here in good touch along with Stein Davies to win the day at Ossy Park


West Coast stumbled and bumbled their way to a draw against an injury ravaged inexperienced bottom of the ladder Gold Coast Suns 22.

But for all that about the footy, there was no stumbling or holding back about the superstar performance at the Osborne Park any gender Northlands Saturday pairs, when the very consistent Pam Chalmers who is up for her second win this season and former Osborne Park premiership winning skipper, super Stein Davies were way to hot for the opposition to collect the big end of the money. Well done to the team

Once again it was the the King Louie Beurteaux and Leo the Lionheart Mola in the money, when they backed up on last weeks winning performance to take out 2nd place. When these two boys are hot they are hot, we have yet to see them when they are not. Well done to the boys

An equal 3rd placing for the red hot duo of Tony Regan and Michael Vitale, they have been prominent of late with placings in the Saturday arvo pairs, consistentcy always pays off. The equal 3rd side of Peter Vuckovic and Dr Sak Punyanitya did well and good to see this team receiving a collect

State Coach announcement

July 31, 2015
The Board of Bowls WA is pleased to announce that Therese Hastings and Tony Hockey have been appointed as the State Ladies and Men's Coach respectively for the next two years.

Therese needs little introduction to bowlers having retired from state playing duties after the Yokine series after over 140 games. Currently the National Training Centre Coach, Hastings has a wealth of experience on what is required to succeed at state level. Recently she was appointed to lead the Australian team to Hong Kong in November where Kristina Krstic will make her national debut alongside the legendary Karen Murphy.

Tony has well earned his appointment to the top job, having previously been Assistant Coach of the Ladies team in their Sides series win in 2010 and Assistant to Pieter Harris for the Men's side for the past two years. Like Hastings, Hockey has achieved Bowls Australia Advanced Coaching accreditation and we look forward to their taking of the state reins immediately..

It is to be noted that Brian Jeppesen and Pieter Harris did not seek re-appointment and the Board thanks them sincerely for their contributions to our high performance area.

Interviews for the Selector's positions continue with announcements to be made on these over the next fortnight.

Manning Eagles off to Helensvale

July 28, 2015
The Manning Eagles received an invitation to play in the Helensvale $60,000 National 5 a Side Challenge. We must say how delighted we are to see West Australia having a good presence with two teams involved in this outstanding event.

Premier league premiers last season, Manning along with the Cambridge Knights are our two representitive sides, as previously written this is the toughest of the tough events to be involved in anywhere in the world.

The Manning 5 man Team:
Thomas Mitchell, Matt Ellul, Peter Ker, Matt Mitchell and Aj Heal

Mitchell, the current State singles champ will play the singles and triples.
Ker and Matt Mitchell will play the Pairs.
The fours team: Ellul, Ker, Matt Mitchell and Heal
Triples: Ellul, T. Mitchell, Heal

The team Manning have selected to play is close to the best possible side that could be selected when we look at the resume of the players.

Tom Mitchell is regarded as one of the two best Singles players in WA with wins in many of the major singles events over the past seven years

Ker and Matt Mitchell are the current Doubleview Master Pairs champs, they were also winners back in 2012. Not withstanding, Ker is also the 2008 State Pairs champ.

Matt Ellul established himself as the best WA skipper in the last two sides series and 2nd best performed in the Premier League last season. He played a major role in helping Manning win the Premiership. Also a State Pairs winner in 2013

Aj Heal a class player, is highly regarded in bowling circles, While there are no major wins in his resume, he has ability to win one sometime in the future.
Since his arrival to Manning in 2009, he has been a major reason for the emergence of Manning to where they now sit and now has a Premiership medallion to show for his commitment and effort.
The occasions I have seen him play in pennants he has been best on ground in the rink clashes he played in (He seems to save his very best performances for Osborne Park)
We wish Manning, who have a terrific side, the very best in their endeavours to be the first WA side to win the Helensvale $60,000 National 5 a Side Challenge.

Mitchell signs with Manning

July 27, 2015

Last season's Premiers, The Manning Eagles today announced that Thomas Mitchell has signed up to play with the Club for the upcoming season.

After a lot of speculation as to what Club would gain his services, it was the Manning Eagles who scooped the opposition, there were two other clubs we are aware of that were in the race to gain his signature, word around the bowling Clubs was Doubleview and Osborne Park had put out feelers to see what his intentions were after it was made known he wouldn't be playing with Victoria Park, his home of some 8 seasons

Mitchell who skippered a State rink in the 2015 sides series and was awarded the Allan Eddy/Rod Wishart medal for the best performed player, is regarded by many as the best player in WA.

An early call I know but his signature has just about signed, sealed and delivered the 2015-16 Premier League flag to the progressive Manning club, a club that has a great culture and promotes the game wonderfully well, they have reaped the rewards of promoting youth with a premiership win last season. It is all blue sky from here with Mitchell now in the Manning ranks

July 27, 2015

I know BowlsWA are taking a bit of heat lately regarding other issues but may I say there is a ray of light (pun intended) in congratulating them into forming a genuine Perth Suns.

I know I am not alone in telling Tommy, Matt and Clive that they the full support and hopes of the wider Western Australia bowling community.

Well done BowlsWA.

Kind Regards,

Tim Murray

PBA draw

July 22, 2015
The Professional Bowlers Association National qualifiers starts August 19th in Mandurah. Thanks to Kyle McIlroy for releasing the draw, it is a pretty hot field and not so easy to pick a winner or two.

The draw

Cambridge take a strong side to Helensvale

July 22, 2015
The Cambridge Knights have once again been invited to compete in the toughest of tough events not only in Australia but the world, the Helensvale $60,000 National 5 a Side Challenge.

This is truly one of the great events on the Bowling calendar for players to compete in. The event as always will be a star studded affair with a couple of Internationals and many of Australia's finest players in attendance.

Cambridge have done themselves proud with a terrific performance in their first appearance in this tournament to finish 9th in 2013, it was the best ever placing by a W.A team.

Last season saw them fall down the rankings to finish 16th but they still performed extremely well, so much so they were once again invited for this year's event. However with the quality Cambridge side that will be on the plane to compete in September, we can rest assured they will be out to improve on that placing.

Two new players in the side this year include Clive Adams and Brad Ball, they replace David Opie and Cliff Wooldridge who are unavailable due to work commitments.

So it is that the team will consist of Clive Adams who is currently one of the two best singles player in WA.

Luke Richardson is a State representative and a former State singles winner

Chris Lander is a long time proven quality player who has been runner up in the State pairs on two occasions and into the semi-finals of the Singles and triples on two or three more occasions. He also was a major contributor to the 2012 Cambridge Premiership win, which was the first ever for the Knights

Brad Ball has proved himself on the big stage with a State Triples title and a member of the Cambridge side in their 2012 Premier league premiership win

Ross Bolton is one of the better leaders in the Premier League and recently won the State Senior singles title

All in all it adds up to a solid side who we hope can bring home the bacon.

Congratulations to Matt Ellul

July 2, 2015
Congratulations to Matt Ellul on being selected to represent WA as the 3rd Solargain Suns member of the side, there is no question that he is thoroughly deserving of his selection. It will be the first time we will have an all WA side which will help to create interest in the event to an all time high.

Also well done to BowlsWA for selecting a WA player in the vacated position left by Jeremy Henry, rather than replacing him with another Interstate player, terrific to see this happen.

The team of Clive Adams, Thomas Mitchell and Matt Ellul is about as strong a side that could be selected for this event, each player has the all round game needed to compete with the best of them, we have every confidence they will do WA proud and be very competitive, may the force be with them.

Australian Premier League

July 1, 2015
The Australian Premier League series which is televised on Fox Television is in it's 3rd season and will be upon us soon.
The make up of the WA side in the two preceeding seasons was a big sticking point for me, it was a three man side consisting of just the one WA player, Clive Adams.
It was most disappointing we were represented by Jeremey Henry and Brett Wilkie rather than a full compliment of WA players.

Last season a new Eastern State side in the competition saw the departure of Wilkie who played for another franchise, he was replaced by a WA player Thomas Mitchell, Henry retained his place.

This year Henry will play for another franchise so that leaves a spot open for another player, hopefully the replacement for Henry will be another WA player so we would at last have a genuine WA side.

The player I would like to see selected is Matt Ellul, He has the credentials when we look at what he has achieved in the past two seasons.

He won a State pairs title in 2013 and is WA's best performed Interstate skipper after being given that role in the past two sides series carnivals, he finished 2nd as the best performed skipper in the PL and played a magic game which played a big part in the Manning Eagles PL Grand final win.
No doubt there are other players who are very worthy to come under consideration and if it happens that the 3rd player selected is another West Australian player rather than an Interstate player that would be very satisfying.

Many thanks to Neville Stevens who sent us this reference regarding the service he received from one of our sponsors John McGrath of Bob Jane T-Marts.

" I know there have been previous testimonials but I would just like to applaud John McGrath and his team at Bob Jane T-Mart in Midland. Once again I made the trip out there to "re-shoe" the boss's chariot. The service, efficient manner and competitive pricing makes the travel worthwhile."
