    Bowls
     
    Social Bowls
     
    Mixed events are continuing throughout the winter on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday afternoons and the winter Men’s Drawn Pairs Saturday afternoons. The Power Play competition is continuing to prove very popular and is held each Thursday evening starting at 4.00pm.
     
    The Sunday afternoon sessions represent a recent social innovation to cater for anyone interested and particularly those who find it difficult to play during the week.  It is a pairs event with meat packs for the winners.
     
    The Ladies are holding social bowls on Thursday mornings and this includes coaching for new bowlers.  This is a great opportunity for any lady in the area and who might be interested in “having-a-go” to come along or contact the club for further details.
     
    Unfortunately, due to recent heavy rainfalls, bowling has been severely curtailed.  One intending player, when informed that an event had been cancelled due to the weather, couldn’t understand and asked “why”?   Well, perhaps the accompanying photo of the bowling green provides the answer!
     
    Open Events
     
    The next club open event (Men’s Triples) is due to be played on Wednesday 16th August.   Bowls Contacts:   Club, or (Men) - Allan Grieves on 0402 812 930 and (Ladies) – Jackie Danes on 0409 439 534.
     
    Tennis
     
    Social tennis on Tuesday and Thursday mornings (8.30 to mid-day) is alive and well attended each week. These sessions provide fun games and a very convivial atmosphere for local residents participating.
     
    While the Tennis Group is flourishing there is still room for newcomers to join and anyone interested will be made very welcome.
     
    Contact: Club or Julie Larson - 0427 222 327.
     
    Dragon Boat Paddling
     
    Spend approximately one hour paddling in the club dragon boat after being taught the technique by experienced dragon boaters.
     
    Outings (held each Friday evening) are through Murray Lakes canals and on the Murray River. No previous paddling experience required but ability to swim 50 metres is. Not that our craft has ever tipped yet! Minimum age 12 years maximum age none. All welcome.

     The boat is controlled by a qualified sweep and all equipment is supplied.  Everyone is welcome in club after each outing. 
     
    Anyone planning to attend is requested to register at the club the day before to allow equipment organisation. Why not come and have a go!!

The “black and white” theme was well illustrated by the décor designed and set up by Jackie Danes and her helpers.  Many thanks to Jackie and to Jayde Cook, the Club’s resident chef for a fine meal.  Awards for the various championship winners were presented by the respective Ladies’ and Men’s Bowls Presidents Marie Hickey and Stan Hill.

    YUNDERUP SPORT & RECREATION CLUB    

    An important notice for existing members is that the Club’s Annual General Meeting will be held at the Club on Sunday 28th May commencing at 10.00am. 

    Bowls

    With the completion of the MDBL Pennant season the league championships are underway.  The singles event was completed recently and Yunderup’s Adam Danes did particularly well to reach the semi-final.  Although Adam performed well in his semi-final match he was outplayed by Mark Simpson of Dudley Park who, in turn, lost out to his club compatriot, Alan Cowie, in the final.

    The remaining League Championship events (Pairs, Triples and Fours) will be played throughout the merry month of May.

    The Ladies League Gala Day will also have been played by the end of April with the Yunderup Club being well represented.

               

    Open Events

    The Ladies’ annual Friendship Day was held on Thursday 6th April.  This took the form of a fun morning of bowls followed by a light lunch and $400 was raised and donated to Bedingfeld Park Aged Care.  Over 30 ladies (members and guests) attended and all enjoyed the day. By general agreement another such day is to be held on Thursday 4th May.

    The Club hosted the Men’s Open Triples on 19th April and a full house of 28 teams representing most of the clubs in the area enjoyed a great day of bowls in fine weather.  The successful teams were:

                Winners:          Ian Ward, Neil Richardson and George Van Koss (Composite)

                Runners-up:    Graham Bishop, Leo Harwood and Harry Browne (Yunderup)

                Third:               Geoff Hull, Jim Bostock and Kevin O’Çonnor (Yunderup).

    The final formal Open event to be staged at the Club for this summer season will be the Inter Retirement/Lifestyle Village Bowling Carnival on Wednesday 3rd May when, again, 28 teams representing 12 establishments will be competing for the Settlers perpetual trophy.

    Bowls Trophy Presentation Night 

    This is the most prestigious event of the bowling calendar and will be held on the evening of Saturday 6th May.  The cost is $30 per head (dinner and dancing etc.).  Bookings are essential - contact Robyn on 9537 6587.

    Social Bowls

    Mixed Drawn Pairs will continue throughout the winter on Tuesday afternoons, Mixed Scroungers will continue each Friday afternoon and the winter Men’s Drawn Pairs will re-commence on the first Saturday of May The recently introduced Power Play competition is continuing to prove very popular and continues each Thursday evening starting at the earlier time of 4.00pm.

    The Ladies are organising social bowls on Thursday mornings and this will include coaching for new bowlers.  This is a great opportunity for any lady in the area and who might be interested in “having-a-go” to come along or contact the club for further details.

    Community Bowls sessions are continuing each Wednesday evening.  This friendly competition continues to be most enjoyable, especially for the non-regular bowlers and attendances have been increasing.  It is hoped more members of the local community will join in these very pleasant and fun evenings.

    Contact: Club or Sherry Taylor – 0429 886 460.

    Tennis

    Social tennis on Tuesday mornings is alive and well with four courts in use each week. These sessions provide fun games and a very convivial atmosphere for local residents participating.

    While the Tennis Group is flourishing there is still room for newcomers to join and anyone interested will be made very welcome.

    Contact: Club or Julie Larson - 0427 222 327.

    Dragon Boating

    Keen paddlers continue their regular Friday evening outings which usually lasts for about one hour.  They enjoy the fitness it creates and the warm-up before starting and exercise warm-down afterwards in order to avoid sore muscles.

    The Club has two boats and look forward to recruiting more members with the aim of having two boats each with sufficient paddlers to go out weekly.  The preferred minimum number of paddlers per boat is ten plus the “sweep”.  Each boat can accommodate up to 20 paddlers.  Those paddling for the first time are instructed in paddling techniques.

    Particular promotion is towards family participation largely because this is to attract increasing numbers of residents in the South Yunderup area (including the developing Austin Lakes estates.  We have had several new recruits from residents having recently moved into the area.  Discussions have also commenced to include school aged groups to have their own outings with an experienced “sweep” and instructor.

    One of our boats can be fitted with a dragon head and tail with a drum included to provide a real “show-off” in the canals and river.

    After the outings we encourage participants to enjoy drinks and a meal in the club house which encourages an excellent comradeship both among our group and the rest of the club members.  The latter are impressed by the Dragon Boat moving about the Murray Lakes and River.

    Why not come and have a go!!
