State Coach/ Selectors announcement

August 27, 2015
BowlsWA announced Graeme Wishart and Roger Barns were the successful applicants for the State Men's selection panel, their appointment will be for a two year term.

Wishart obviously impressed the selection panel after filling the role as a selector for the previous two years and Roger Barns who had filled the role previously, returns to the role.

Barns will have the distinction of being the first person to have the role of State selector for both the Men's State and Senior State sides at the same time.

Lindsay Thorn applied for the role but was unsuccessful, his non selection from the role he has filled since 2007, (barring one year in 2009 when he resigned in frustration with the then board) until the conclusion of the 2015 series, signals the end of the line for him in this area of the game.

Perhaps his finest moment as a selector was in 2007 when WA led the field into the last day needing to beat SA in the last game of the series to win the Alley Shield, they lost and finished 2nd to NSW.

Mike Zusman a State Senior selector applied for the role, was also unsuccessful in his bid to become a State Men's selector.

We wish the panel of Coach Tony Hockey and selectors Graeme Wishart and Roger Barns the best of luck in their endeavours to rebuild the fortunes and previous strong standing of the State side over the next two years.

Osborne Park Bowling Club are very proud to advise that Jaewyn Norton and Helen Stevens have been chosen for 2015/16 Women's State Selectors

Kyle McIlroy to play for Stirling

August 21, 2015
The biggest move of the season so far has occurred with departure of long time Doubleview player Kyle McIlroy who has committed to play with the Stirling Bowling Club next season. No doubt this move is an unexpected bombshell that Doubleview and the broader bowling community would not have expected.........


Day 2 PBA results

August 21, 2015
Congratulations to Glenn Pauling and Scott Walker who won the World Pairs national PBA qualifier to compete in the UK later this year, they defeated Trystan Smallacombe and Clive Adams in the first game of the event then followed up in the final to win against Bernie Melville and Australian squad member Ray Pearse in a tie break. 9-7, 6-7, 2-1

They were the only WA players to win any of the qualifiers, It is a great reward for both players who have been involved in the PBA for quite sometime.

This will be Glenn Pauling's second such trip to play in world PBA, the other occasion was in 2011 when he was involved in one of the singles but bombed out early in the piece. We wish them well in their endeavours to become the new World pairs champion duo

We found it difficult to get scores for this event, only because of Dave Farley were we able to be informed for which we thank him.
