Go the Bulls in 2022!

Broadbeach Bulls make an awesome start in 2022

It has been an extremely busy start to the year at the club which has seen us host a raft of major events. Starting with the postponed 2021 Nationals in back in April and the Australian Championships and Australian Champion of Champion Singles; followed by the Queensland District Sides and Queensland Championships in May; hotly pursued by the Blue Diamond Pairs, Matador Fours and The Australian Open in June. 

Our Broadbeach Bulls players put in a sterling effort across all the Championships and saw them reap the rewards bringing home the gold and silverware. Congratulations to all bowlers as well as a massive shout out to our greens men who kept our greens in tip top condition despite very difficult weather conditions.

Broadbeach Bulls have another Incredible Bowls Year

The Broadbeach Bulls have had their best bowls season to date.

 

The club, which has attracted a lot of new members & bowlers over the past year has just had their most successful pennant season in history.

 

The club won Division 1 Ladies Pennant for the sixth time in seven years.

The men had six Pennant teams and all made the Grand Final. Sadly, Divisions 1 & 2 lost the Grand Finals to very strong Helensvale sides whilst Divisions 3, 5, 9 & 10 all won the Premiership. The Pennant season comes off the end of the Premier League which finished in March. The Premier League has 14 of the best clubs in South East Queensland compete. The club lost the Grand Final in the top side and won the Premiership in the “A’s”.

The club participated in nine events in total and made nine Grand Finals - Winning six of them! The atmosphere at the club was of jubilation and friendship on the Sunday after the finals. All members came back to celebrate as one unified club. Bowls Co-ordinator Ryan Bester had this to say about the clubs success.

 

“It has been a great year for all members. We have welcomed players from other clubs and have had many new bowlers play in the pennants for the first season. It was very gratifying to see the smile on their faces coming back after winning.  The club has a great culture at the moment and everyone is cheering for each other”
