Indoor bowls club marks an incredible 60 years of games

MEMBERS of the Wesley Indoor Bowls Club will celebrate the organisation's 60th birthday this month.

The club, which began as the Methodist Indoor Bowls Club changed its name during its existence of more than half a century.

It is now known as the Wesley Indoor Bowls Club, as part of the Uniting Church.

"Some of our members have been playing for more than 20 years," club president Mavis Stacey said.

Bowls captain Mabel Mott, one of the longest serving members, enjoys the club's social aspect.

"There's lots of friendship and fellowship amongst the members," she said.

"Bowls requires a lot of concentration."

Mrs Stacey said bowls was an unpredictable sport.

"One week you can play really well and the next you might not," she said.

The club will celebrate its milestone on April 30.

"It's what we call an open afternoon where we invite other indoor bowls clubs to join us," Mrs Stacey said.
