Bowlers returning to greens

Several bowlers in the Northern Cape were happy to be back on the bowling greens this weekend after receiving the green light to play again, although under strict Covid-19 regulations.

“This is great news for clubs and members as bowls assist with mental and overall. Lawn bowls is a social sport and some restrictions will affect this part of the game. But members are happy to play the sport they love,” Jacques Swanepoel, Northern Cape representative on the National Standing Committee for Membership and Marketing, says.

Many clubs in the province took time to get everything in place before opening to ensure the health and safety of members. Several clubs opened over the past weekend. Some struggled to get used to playing with masks, but the overall experience was that of joy.

“This is a safe sport to practise during this period,” Swanepoel says. “Contact your local club and book a session to try out the sport. And bring the kids along who are stuck at home.”

At the Warrenton Bowls Club, where Swanepoel plays, three generations of Swanepoels were welcomed back to the greens on Saturday (25/07) along with eight other members. Swanepoel’s dad, Chris, his wife, Geziena, and eight-year-old son, Juan, joined him.

Father Robben Chaamano and daughter Lerato Sebatane also showed up to play at the club in Warrenton. In May, Lerato who is a keen player, won a set of bowls for her fun rap video on bowling during the lockdown.

Some of the other clubs that were also open this weekend, are those from Prieska, Bloemhof, Hartswater and a few in Kimberley. Visit the Facebook page Bowls 1Sport4life for more information.
