Taylors Cup Challenge

Our club has again entered two teams in the Taylors Cup Challenge. They will be managed by Barry Fry and Allan Hughes.

Taylors Cup is a separate competition to our normal pennant games.

It is sponsored by Taylor Bowls and is run by an independent committee.

Games are played at various clubs on Sunday evenings commencing at 6.00pm (roll-up from 5.30pm)

Please see attached sheet for further details.  There is a player list on our notice board.

I encourage new players to be involved. If you have any queries, please speak to Barry, Allan or me.

   To all pennant playing members,

On match days we are obliged to provide Umpires and Measurers for home games. We have a small group of dedicated players who have been through the training required to act in these roles. However, we would like a few more qualified in both areas.

Bowls SA runs the courses. Here are the ones coming up:

August 23rd – Measurer. 10am start
Prospect Broadview BC
August 18th – Marker & Measurer
August 25th – Umpire and re-accreditation
Morphett Vale BC
8 September – 9.30am Markers and 1.00pm Reaccreditation for Umpires
13 October – 9.30am Measurers
20 October – 9.30am Umpires

See the Bowls SA website for more details. If you are interested, perhaps speak to one of our umpires to find out more about the role and the training.

Please consider these opportunities, as not only will you be doing a great service to the club, but it will improve your understanding of the game and make you a better all round player.

It takes just one volunteer to start a ripple effect.

Without our Volunteers, the Happy Valley Bowling Club would not exist.

Our Volunteers are the backbone of our Club and they really do make a difference.

Thanks to all our volunteers, past, present and future for your commitment as we strive to strengthen and grow our Club.

A message from Bowls SA Bowls Australia have recently announced the impending removal of the requirement to produce a Medical Certificate in order to obtain approval for use of a Bowling Arm as detailed in their announcement which can be found by clicking here. 

Bowls SA will fall into line with Bowls Australia and effective 1 May 2019 will no longer require a Medical Certificate in order to approve use of Bowling Arms.

Associations may determine their own position on whether to administer an approval process for use of a Bowling Arm or not.

The following policies and forms have been updated to reflect this decision:

For any further clarification you may require, please feel free to contact the Bowls SA Office on 8234 7544.

Kind Regards,
Erin Haines
