Bowls winners take Professional approach

IT was an all-Professional affair at the Sponsors' Bowls Challenge at Club Banora on Sunday, with Professional Real Estate's first side defeating its second-string outfit in the grand final.

Twelve teams representing various local businesses took to the greens, but it was the boys with the property know-how who prevailed to go head-to-head in a close-fought finale.

Twin Towns Services Bowling Club director Ross O'Leary was impressed with the quality of bowls on display and believes an excellent day was had by all.

“There were a few good bowlers there and a couple were particularly interested in coming down and playing more often,” he said.

“They all came down in uniform and had fun team names which was good to see.

“The weather turned out lovely and everyone enjoyed themselves.

“Most importantly the sponsors had a great time and said they'll be back again next year.”

Despite several teams pulling out at the last minute, more than 100 people, including 60 players, attended the club's second annual charity event, with $650 being raised for The Tweed Hospital's Children's Ward.

“Numbers and donations were a little down on last year, but all money raised will go straight to a good cause,” O'Leary said.

More than $1000 in prizes were donated by local businesses, with raffles and a sausage sizzle prompting those in attendance to dip into their pocket for charity.
