Vale Willis Gerard “Gerry” Teague

It is with great sadness that I advise of the passing of Gerry Teague. Gerry passed away peacefully last night at 9.00pm. Gerry was an ex Glenferrie Hill Recreation Club member who became a member of the Bowls Section in August 1999 when the two entities joined.

Gerry was a great clubman who undertook a number of roles including Treasurer and coach of the Ladies at Glen Street.

Condolences to his son Michael and other members of his family.


A Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Gerry Teague is to be held at our Glen Street Clubrooms on Monday 27 May 2019 commencing at 2.00pm and all members who knew Gerry are welcome to attend this service.

An update from the green keeper for the grass greens over Winter:

  • The greens will remain open for use up until the end of Winter Pennant (this is approximately the end of June)
  • The grass greens will be closed over July and into August, with the exact dates to be confirmed closer to the period.
  • All play will be East / West from now on, with the pegs and numbers removed for North / South play.
  • The greens will continue to be rolled as required and weather permitting.

New Umpires Required

The Club is running seriously short of accredited umpires.  Please consider applying for accreditation.  The task is not onerous, generally only requiring the measurement of close bowls during games throughout the pennant season.  Any member who would like to know more about what is required or who would like to undertake an umpires training course, please call John Graham on 0417 034 417
