Most bowlers will never see an 8 ender much less score one. But Brenda Frank isn’t most people. Brenda had three of them within 4 days this past week. Wow!! During a club game this past Wednesday, Brenda and club mate Joanne Kullman (below left) recorded a rare perfect end – the score of 8. Additionally, over the weekend, while competing in the Tom Moore Memorial tournament, Brenda and playing partner Barb Heinrichs scored an 8 ender in two different games. Way to go ladies!!  Congratulations to all!!!!

  • The plucky players have refused to let age or disability get in the way of their favourite game by using the clever inventions which enable them to bowl with ease
  • Members with back, hip, or knee problems are now able to bowl like never before, as are bowlers who need to use wheelchairs
  • Sarah Bage, customer involvement officer, Thirteen Group, said: “Physical activity has a huge impact on people’s health and well-being and it is great to see that this sport can now be opened up to more people in our communities.”
