Congratulations to Dawn Hayman, Lynsey Clarke and Kelsey Cottrell who have become the newly crowned Women’s Triples World Champions!!

It was a routine day for the women’s triples team as they enjoyed an unblemished pair of sessions. The trio were given a first session bye before celebrating their first victory over Hong Kong China, and then backing up to overcome Argentina. After day one, Australia were placed second in the section, two behind Ireland, who were yet to have the bye. The team booked their spot into the finals early after day 2 of play, securing 3 wins from 3 against Botswana, Fiji and Ireland.

Opening the knockout rounds they came up against South Africa, leading by just one shot after 10 ends before breaking the game open. That win set up a semi final against Ireland, who had just recorded a memorable come from behind win over England. Australia met New Zealand in the final, who had a thrilling win over Malaysia and a dominant victory against Canada to advance. But it was Australian’s that secured a blistering victory over New Zealand with a 15-9 win in the opening final of the day.

Clarke and Cottrell earned their third on green gold, while Hayman saluted for the first time in what was an outstanding major event debut.


Congratulations to Kristina KrsticDawn HaymanLynsey Clarke and Kelsey Cottrell who became Silver Medallists in the Ladies Fours at the World Bowls Championships!!

The girls notched up an undefeated day to kickstart the tournament in style. The quartet commenced their title tilt with a brilliant win over Ireland before facing an undefeated Canada in the last match of the afternoon on the first day, holding on to take a classic victory. The second day was sealed with three successes, as they continued their unbeaten run. With just one sectional match remaining against India, the fours unit locked away a top two spot, booking a place in the quarter finals.

The Jackaroos took on England in the decider as they looked to win a third fours crown in four events. After a tough battle, England became women’s fours champions for the third time, and for the first time since 2004 after defeating Australia in dominant fashion.
