The Ashfield Under 5's was developed in 2010 by the Ashfield Women's Bowling Group in response to new women bowlers in the club who wanted to play competition singles. The competition is for women who have been registered for five years or less.
This year, forty women bowlers representing fifteen bowling clubs converged on the picturesque Ashfield Bowling Club to compete against others of similar experience.
State representative player, Ms Jan Rolph marked the final game.
NSW Club Challenge
Ashfield Bowling Club will be competing in the NSW Club Challenge in 2012.
The Bowls NSW Club Challenge pits sides of seven club based bowlers up against each other in singles, pairs and fours, with points allocated in each match based on rinks won. In knockout play, the side to win two out of the three contests wins the match. Sides are arranged into local sections, playing up to six round robin matches to determine a section winner that will progress to the knockout regional finals, ultimately reaching the final four and progressing to the state finals.
Last year Ashfield Bowling Club reached the regional finals of the mixed division, this year we plan to go much further!
The number of sides that we enter depends on how many people put thier names down to play, so please get your names in quickly.
Major Singles 2012
Metua Teinaki wins the Major Singles title!
Metua Teinaki played an almost flawless game to defeat current District Singles Champion, Beverley Pendleton, 31-14 on Saturday, 2 June. It was an overcast day and a slow green and both players agreed that the slower green suited Metua.
This win is a great achievement as Metua also won the 2012 Minor Singles. Metua said that although she had played bowls for over eight years, this is the first year she had won singles titles. By the way she played in this match, this is just the beginning of many more titles.

With her last bowl Bev drew inside her opponents three bowls to rest beside the jack. Billy was unable to wrest Bev's bowl away from the match winning position. In the semi Bev defeated Wests President Jean Wisby 31-14.

Minor Singles 2012
Mamma 31 defeated Anthia 30 in a thrilling game, for the Minor Singles Trophy on 26th Feburary.
L to R: Anthia Hart, Metua Teinaki
Watch for these names Metua Teinaki and Anthia Hart.
Ashfield Bowling Club was the venue of the strongest contested Minor Singles game for some time when Metua Teinaki played Anthia Hart in the final.
For near on 4 hours, spectators were glued to their seats. You would swear they were watching a game of Rugby. The concentration and determination of both players and obvious delight of playing on the BEST greens in the inner west, was clearly shown.
Both players are known as being very focussed and dedicated to the game. Both players were rewarded for this, with selection to play in the Ashfield Green Pennants Grade 3 team. Anthia is often seen concentrating all her efforts on the grind of practising the draw shot.
Metua was slight favourite at the beginning of the game because of her extra experience, ability to skip and her excellent draw shot. The game was neck and neck through out with Metua drawing away 30 to 21.
Anthia doggedly clawed her way back into the game 30 all. Chasing three outstanding bowls from Metua, with her last bowl Anthia narrowly missed the shot going down to Metua 31-30. The crowd gave the two players a standing ovation shaking their heads at the quality of the game.
Metua said that she could not remember a game where she had felt so much pressure on the last end.
Anthia summed up her experience ĎI didnít win the match but I feel like a championí.
The major champions have been put on notice!

2011 City West Pairs
Ashfield Bowling Club defeated Marrickville Bowling Club by a single shot to win the 2011 City West Pairs Championships 18-17.
Ashfield Bowling Club's players Beverley Pendleton & Metua Teinaki defeated Marrickville Bowling Club's Marlene Mihaere & Edna McLaughlan.
With a single end left in the game, the score was 17 all. Ashfield drew a shot very close to the Jack , therefore held one shot.Marrickville's only chance was to try to remove the shot Bowl.
Marrickville's Skipper, Marlene, played their teams last bowl which only just missed the shot Bowl. Ashfield's Skipper, Metua, wisely declared the head without playing her last bowl to ensure victory for the Ashfield pair.
The Ashfield pair appreciated the large group of supporters in attendance and in fine voice in cheering their team on.
2011 Women's Major Single's Champion
President Faye Flint defeated Anthia Hart 31-26.
Faye drew upon her many years experience to win the game in the last two ends. Up until then the game could have gone either way. Anthia has been playing just on 2 and 1/2 years and gave Faye a challenge right to the end.
