Latest: Night of the Stars
The (NOTS) Awards were once again a success and it was good to see who the winners were and to applaud them.
The guest speaker for the night was our very own Protea Bowler, Victor Siphali, who was interviewed on his recent participation at World Bowls in Australia this year. He was interviewed by Ian McKenzie. It proved to be a most informative and at times amusing interview. We are so proud of you Victor.

Bill Henery Competition
Bill Henery was a member of the BSC Bowls Club and he funded the building of the Sun Lounge for the Bowlers use as a Tea Lounge.
Every year we honour his contribution by holding a competition in his name, this is purely for the BSC Bowlers and no outside players can take part. We were lucky this year to have this competition sponsored by Personal Trust, who put up the Prize Money.

Bowls - an exciting and rewarding sport!
Playing bowls enhances hand/eye co-ordination, concentration, and a two-hour game is great way to stay fit and healthy.
At Bryanston Sports Club (BSC), bowls can be both competitive and fun. Many of South Africa’s top international, provincial and district bowlers have chosen BSC as their club (Prince Neluonde and Gerry Baker). What's more, BSC boasts two grade-A bowling greens; an extremely attractive environment; and a very hospitable clubhouse, making it a wonderful place to play and meet new friends.
There are various levels of bowls on offer. Weekends and mid-week, men and women compete in fun, social bowls matches.
Serious bowling incudes league team matches and inter-provincial tournaments that could possibly lead to International selection.
A mentorship programme has been created to assist prospective talent to the top of their game.
New members are guaranteed all the guidance and coaching they need to ensure bowls becomes their sport of choice.
