Aiming for top grade
AFTER North Beach Bowling Club provided him with his grounding in lawn bowls, Peter McKeough said he has taken his game to another level after his first year with Park Beach Bowling Club.
A move to Coffs Harbour close to Park Beach Bowling Club made changing clubs a logical move for a player who is on the way up.
A district grade four pennant, a mixed fours club title and a semi-finalist in the minor pairs gave Peter a satisfying 12 months although like any bowler he wants to get better.
His aim is to win a men's club title at Park Beach over the next 12 months although ultimately his goal is to play in the club's number one pennant team.
"The top pennants grade is something everyone aspires to, I just want to keep improving through the grades to the stage where one day I can get a crack at playing alongside the best bowlers in the club," he said.
He explained that although North Beach was an excellent club, their lack of numbers worked against him.
"At North Beach you seemed to be playing the same people all the time and my game didn't seem to be going anywhere," Peter said.
"Here every game you play is tough and there is always a new challenge around the corner."
