Adam Crouch, Member for Terrigal, visited the Terrigal Bowling Club on Tuesday 6th April to congratulate the men’s and ladies’ bowlers on their successful application for grants through the NSW Local Sports Grant Program.  Adam handed over a cheque for $4,000 to support the club’s ongoing commitment to providing opportunities to both junior and adult bowlers, especially those adults with restricted or limited mobility issues. Adam was told that Terrigal Bowling Club hoped to encourage all groups to take up the sport and aimed to assist those that already play to continue playing bowls for much longer.

The Terrigal Bowling Club team of coaches includes coaches with qualifications or experience to assist junior, new and aspiring bowlers, wheelchair bowlers, bowlers with impaired vision and bowlers with limited mobility problems. All coaches are accredited with Bowls Australia and have satisfactorily passed the NSW Working With Children Checks.

 Congratulations to Ettalong Memorial's Bailey Meti for winning the Singles element of the State Under 18 7 a Side Championships held yesterday and today (7th to 8th April 2021) at Dubbo.   

Other credible performances were made by the Pairs team of Mingara's Billy Waite and Blane Cook who finished 8th in the Pairs and especially the BCC Fours team who finished 4th.  The fours team was Munmorah's Olivia Crane, Toukley District's Reegan Peterson, Gosford City's Brandon Willmette and Ettalong Memorial's Brandan Stokes.

Overall the side finished 3rd, the best that I can remember any of our sides achieving in this prestigious event.  

The players are travelling home as this notice is published and more will be said and hopefully some photos will be available on their return.

BCC wins back the Michael Schwarcz Shield


On Sunday 28th March 2021,  the BCC Open and Senior Representative sides were successful in winning back the Michael Schwarcz Shield at Northmead Sports.  However, Zone 10 could not find the shield, so I provide the photo above of the last time we won it with yours truly being presented the trophy by now President of Zone 10 Mark (Scruffy) Barton.  The Open Side was:

Lee Trethowan's team won 19-18, Mark Wheatley's team won 24-13 playing against a four that included Darren Morrison BCC's 2020 Open Bowler of the Year who now plays with Merrylands.   However losses were recorded by Rod Rewko's team 15-29 and James Cook's four 15-17.  An over all loss for the Open Side by 4 shots.   

The Seniors game also resulted in a 2 rinks all score, but a massive win by Tony Shoebridge's four 39-11 had a major influence on the result.    John Robert's team lost 15-19, Phil Westcott's team lost 17-23 but Kevin Bowcock's team won 25-18.  A total win by 25 shots which also ensured that Zone 15 win the Michael Schwarcz Shield 4 rinks all and by 21 shots.

The day was invaluable for the Selectors and wonderful practice for the players particularly as the Seniors game against Zones 2 and 6 had to be cancelled due to the weather.

2020 Bowlers of the Year


With the 2020 State Finals completed on Friday (19/3/2021), Bowls Central Coast can now declare that the 2020 Bowlers of the Year are:

2020 Open Bowler of the Year (and recipient of the Wal Rainbow Shield) is Darren Morrison who represented Bateau Bay when winning the BCC 2020 Singles.  Darren achieved 185 points.  He also won the 2020 BCC Triples and made the semi-final of the Fours.  Runner Up to Darren was  Chayne Edwards on 160 points largely due to his win in the Champion of Club Champions Singles and also the Pairs (the first time this has ever been done).

2020 Senior Bowler of the Year is Phil Westcott of Ettalong Memorial due to his massive effort in the 2020 State Senior Singles Finals to finish Runner-Up.  Phil achieved 265 points mostly due to his Senior singles efforts but he was also a very unlucky runner up in the 2020 BCC Senior fours.   The runner-up Senior Bowler of the Year is Tony Shoebridge of Bateau Bay whose side won the BCC Senior fours also won the BCC Senior Pairs, was a semi-finalist in the BCC Senior Singles and also the State Fours.  Tony accumulated 235 Points.

The 2020 President's Reserve Bowler of the year is Michael Maycock of Breakers BC Wamberal   Michael won his points most because of being runner-up in the 2020 State President's Reserve Triples with Peter Gibbs and Graeme Styman.   Michael was also a BCC 2020 President's Fours Semi-finalist with Peter Gibbs.  Both Peter and Michael finished on 165 points.   The tie-breaker as published in circular 2020/01 had to be implemented.  The tie-breaker allocates additional points for Club Championships won in that year for the persons in the tie.   Michael had an outstanding year of Club Championships in 2020. He won the fours (with Peter), the Pairs (with Darren Hooper) and was runner-up in the triples.   Accordingly, the tie-breaker determined that Michael Maycock is the 2020 BCC President's Reserve Bowler of the Year, Congratulations Michael.

The Under 18 2020 Bowler of the Year has been already awarded to Bailey Meti.  In 2020 Baily won the singles, won the pairs and was runner-up in the fours amassing 225 points.  He was desperately unlucky that the 2020 State Finals of the Under 18 Championships were cancelled eliminating his chances of winning additional points in the State Finals.  

In 2020 a new approach has been taken with Bowler of the Year.  Previously the Open Bowler of the Year was the Bowler of the Year.  However from 2020, the Bowler of the Year is the Bowler of the Year who attains the most points and that Bowler is Phil Westcott.  Congratulations Phil.  He can add the title of BCC Bowler of the Year and BCC Senior Bowler of the Year to his Ettalong Memorial Bowler of the Year that he won for 2020.

Phil, Darren and Michael will be presented with their trophies, badges and prizemoney as soon as practicable.  Bailey has already received his trophy, badge and prizemoney.  BCC was going to wait for the 2021 Presentation Night to present the 2020 Bowlers of the Year, but it was decided that would be unfair as the 2020 Bowlers of the Year would never get a chance to proudly display the trophy in their Clubs.
