Australian side championships

What amazing results from the Victorian Sides at the Nationals this year. MCC had five players participate for Victoria at the prestigious Australian Senior and Open Sides Championships.

The Senior side were under pressure from the start to repeat their winning form from the previous year. With very tight matches the women’s team including Alison Hall and Denise Huender were awarded the Gold Medal, whilst the men’s team including Michael Wilson had a very close finish to win the Silver. Both women’s and men’s Teams combined to bring back the overall Australian Championship trophy.

Congratulations to the Victorian women’s side winning the Gold medal in the Australian side championship of which our Tris Doolan participated in and Brendan Gallagher also being in the Men’s team. Fantastic effort by all.

MCC Bangkok Tour

A small contingent of MCC bowlers recently joined MCC cricketers and golfers, MCC President, Fred Oldfield and CEO Stuart Fox in a multi-sport tour to Bangkok. The tour was hosted by the Royal Bangkok Sports Club (RBSC). The sporting and club facilities located at RBSC’s two central Bangkok locations ranged through from a racecourse and golf course through tennis, polo, squash, swimming pools and a very spongy lawn bowling rink.

Our party enjoyed four days of competition and generous hospitality, participating in two matches against RBSC bowlers, an official bowls dinner hosted by the club and a race day at the racecourse.
