Students get out on the green topPhotos

Beaudesert Bowls Club had experienced an injection of youth in recent weeks with over 20 students from Beaudesert High School learning the finer points of lawn bowls from local club members each Wednesday.

The students have been put their pacesby local members Carole and John Stubbings and Annette and Cedric Musch, with Annette telling The Beaudesert Times the club is thrilled to see the students who are made of mostly from years 10 and 11 enjoying the game.

“It’s good for the club, we enjoy having them here, they’ve seemed to really enjoy playing and they have all been very well behaved,” she said.

“We sit them down when they first arrive and tell them the do’s and don’ts and everything but the main thing we tell them is just to have fun and enjoy playing.”

Annette who regularly plays in competitions at clubs outside of the Beaudesert area said she is hopeful that some of the students, who will continue playing on Wednesdays until the school holidays, will continue on with the sport.

“You often see younger players at different clubs when you go to competitions at the coast but we don’t have any younger players here,” she said.

“We hope they keep playing once they finished here with the school.”

Annette said she was just glad that some of the younger generation considered Lawn Bowls a fun game to play and compete in.

“In previous years bowls was the student’s third or fourth choice but this group seem really interested in being here which is good,” she said.
