CLUB CHAMPION 2015-2016

A big congratulations goes out to Jesse Thomas on winning the

Club Championship for the 2015-2016 season. That's three in a

row for this fine young bowler. This has not been achieved  since

the late Alan Mackay did it in the early 80's. I think for memory

when the tigers last won a premiership as well. A magnificent

effort considering its hard enough to win one.

Well done Jesse.

Going For Gold - Tim Slater

GOING FOR GOLD - TIM SLATER

Congratulations Tim on being selected in the Australians With Disabilities Team (AWD) for the next Commonwealth Games in 2014

TIM:           Thanks Groucho. I was rapt

GROUCHO:  I bet it was a thrill to practice  with one of your idols in Mark Casey who you are pictured with here and Mathew Flapper

TIM:           Yeah it was.  I still keep in touch with him which is really good.

GROUCHO:  What was the best tip he gave you while you were training over in Scotland

TIM:           Always be up to the head and just enjoy the game

GROUCHO:  When did you start playing bowls?

TIM:           I started playing at the age of 13 with my father out at Waubra then came to Victoria last year in the 2012 season

GROUCHO:  Gee, maybe I should have taken bowls up then rather than falling out of trees and  off motor bikes and feeling like I do now

                  Being born with Cerebal Palsy hasn't really stopped you getting on with your life.

TIM:            No I can pretty much do most things which is great

GROUCHO:  So you  go to Ballarat Uni

TIM:           Yeah, I am studying Counselling

GROUCHO:  Wow. That line of work is going to come in handy here at Victoria.  You could set up an office right here and get plenty of work

                  as there are a few blokes here that need a bit of help.

                  Have you got a girlfriend at the moment?

TIM:           No, I haven't. I am putting all my focus into studying and plenty of practice out on the green which is looking very good at the moment.

GROUCHO:  Well congratulations once again mate and best of luck in the coming season.

TIM:           Thanks Groucho.  I look forward to playing with you this season seeing you are a legend around here.

GROUCHO:  I know mate , thanks

So if there are any  sponsors out there willing to jump on board to give him a hand to get to the Commonwealth Games just give Victoria Bowling Club a call on 03 53326242

alan mackay tribute



The Victoria Bowling Club deeply regrets the passing of a club legend in Alan Mackay.

Anything Macca hadn't achieved in bowls wasn't worth doing.

I was lucky enough to play with Alan in back to back Division 1 Premierships in the 90's.

It was sensational to watch him apply his trade by drawing the shot no matter how close the opposition bowl was to the cat.

Macca was always in control of the situation whatever was happening in the game.

The list goes on of his achievements in the game of bowls whether it be on the grass or playing indoor, he was a true champion of the game.

He was the Club Champion 7 times, he won 2 BRBA singles titles and played 740 games.

Alan will be sadly missed by us all

BDBD Fours Champions 2012-2013


The team of Jarrad Burt, Jess Thomas, Andrew Panther & Michael Cunningham are now down to the last 16 which will be played in Bendigo on April 11 -17th.

After an excellent showing at Woodend Bowling Club in very windy conditions they defeated the CHDB Fours team of Jim Lefeure, Andy Lefeure, John Seymour and skipper Toby Barker .

With some very good draw bowling and great shot selection they won 24 - 6

After lunch the boys came up the against the four of Gary Coburn, Peter Walsh, John Simmons and skipper Andy Brumby from GBD.

In a scrappy affair, they prevailed 21 - 11 in very tricky conditions.

The boys compliment each other very well and I am tipping that with an ounce of luck and good draw bowling  they could go all the way.

You are looking at the State Champions of Victoria

As I previously said I did tip that they would win with a bit of luck

Congratulations boys, a mighty effort.

If Victoria Bowling Club wasn't already on the map, we certainly are now
