Port City Young Guns
Port City Bowling Club are celebrating the success of their two young star performers Callum Murray and Jack Lewis! Last weekend Callum won the Zone 14 Champion of Champion Singles Crown at Hibbard Sports Club and two weeks earlier Jack Lewis won the District Singles. Both players are now part of the Zone winning triples team who will play in the State Finals .
Like every Bowling Club the traditional image of bowls has portrayed either pensioners or retirees but that is far from the truth with many young starts playing the great game.
Port City Bowling Club have been changing this image to encourage juniors and potential bowlers to there club and the rewards are starting to show.
Callum has been playing bowls at Port City since he was 14 and he has been mentored and encouraged with his skills reaching the pinnacle of success .
Jack won the District singles and was beaten narrowly in the Zone final by Corey Daley, an outstanding bowler who paid tribute to Jack Lewis saying he had never bowled better in his life to just beat Jack.
The team of Jack Lewis, Callum Murray and the nearly 80 year old Bryce Stewart will be a force to be reckoned with when they play off for the state titles in October on the Central Coast.
The team has a good mix of youth and experience and Port City supporters will be watching with anticipation as that story unfolds.
There has been over recent times an increase in the younger bowlers joining the Club with coordinator Phil baker teaching the young ones the skills of the game.
