BALLYBRAKES COMMUNITY INDOOR BOWLING CLUB – INTER PRIMARY SCHOOLS TOURNAMENT
What a fantastic morning yesterday at BCIBC. 48 P6 children from Millburn PS, Christie PS, Damhead PS, Lislagan PS, St Brigid’s PS and Garryduff PS competed for the inaugural BCIBC Youth Development Trophy. The young bowlers had the benefit of 4 weeks coaching at their schools, using ‘New Age bowls’ in order to prepare for the event. In fact, although only 48 participated in the event, some 180 kids were actually introduced to bowls during this initiative.
After a closely fought contest, Millburn PS were the eventual winners. However, ‘BOWLS’ was the real winner and it was great to see such potential talent on display and having loads of FUN of the bowling green! Many thanks to all at BCIBC, the teachers, the parents and especially to Stephen McCartney and John Fall from the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for all their help.
Finally, all children received information regarding a JUNIOR CLUB starting Thursday 24th November at 6.30pm. #TryBowls
