Integrated Pairs showcases inclusive bowls in Berwick

by Team BV

The 2019 Integrated Pairs Tournament, proudly sponsored by Travelling Jack Bowls Supplies, was held at the Berwick Bowling Club on Sunday.

The event showcased the inclusive and accessible nature of bowls by providing an opportunity for bowlers with a disability to pair with friends, family or fellow club members in a pairs tournament.  All ages and bowling abilities competed in what was a fun and enjoyable event for all involved.

Jason Barrett and Jim Corcoran from Mitcham Bowling Club were victorious over David Connell (Ocean Grove) and Stuart Hedger (Lara) who came second, followed by Ross Higgins (Shepparton Park) and Max Goldsmith (Mulgrave) who finished in their place.

Congratulations to Mark Walker, Claire and Glen Baskett, and Berwick Bowls Club and its volunteers who all did a fantastic job in organising the day.
