Graeme Spry brings up 1,000 games milestone
Playing 1,000 pennant games is a great achievement, and MCC-Kew made sure Graeme Spry’s milestone was celebrated and commemorated in style.
Spry played his first pennant game in 1958 as a 24-year-old with his father Keith, and has been playing pennant bowls ever since.
And he is still playing at the highest level for MCC-Kew, bringing up his milestone match on November 28 against Bundoora RSL on his home Barkers Road green in round eight of Bowls Victoria’s Taylor Bowls Premier Division.
His 1,000 pennant matches includes playing over 100 pennant matches with the late great Glyn Bosisto, known as the Bradman of Bowls at the Kew bowling club.
Now a fit and spritely 80-year-old, Spry is eager to continue his elite and amazing career, and suggests playing bowls “keeps him fit & healthy, and feeling younger than his 4-score of years”.
