Betty Britten Returns to the Club

 

Long time member and champion bowler at  Sorrento Bowls Club,  Betty Britten returned to the Clubhouse on December 5 to attend a first birthday party for her youngest great grand child, Sadie!   One of Betty's 16 great grandchildren!). 

Around 60  joined the celebrations while enjoying barefoot bowls  on a perfect Sunny afternoon.

Betty will be fondly remembered by many members who played pennant with her over several years as well as indoor bowls over many Winters.

Betty now lives at Kilsyth  - closer to several members of her family while her many achievements out on the rinks are acknowledged on several of the Club's honour boards.

 

Pictured is Betty with  grandson Steve, wife Hayley and baby Sadie.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Stephanie's hen's party  was a glamour event with all the girls dressed to the hilt for a fun time with barefoot bowls at Sorrento recently.

Situated on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Sorrento Bowls Club offers something for everyone. 

Membership:

Full club membership is only $100 for the first year and $215 for every ensuing year.  Social membership at $30 is also great value. 

Location:

We are located in the grounds of the Sorrento football and cricket clubs and have three magnificent grass greens.

Members have the opportunity of playing Tuesday and Saturday Pennant as well as many other competition events during the height of the season which runs from September through April.  We also have off-season social bowls games every Saturday and Wednesday as well as indoor bowls on a Saturday during the winter.

There are many social events where club uniform is usually not required.  These include the social Saturday and Wednesday bowls during the main bowls season plus a number of very popular Twilight Bowls on many Fridays during the summer.  A feature of the Twilights is the outstanding two course meal for just $10.  We have an extensive bar with prices much lower than neighbouring hotels and restaurants.

Increasingly we are accommodating groups of "Barefoot Bowlers".  For just $10 per person we provide loan bowls and access to the bar.  Groups which have availed themselves of this fun activity include work groups, bucks' and hens' parties, teachers and parents from local schools and many holidaying people.  Bookings for these events are essential.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and most hospitable club.  Visitors from other bowls clubs are always welcome.  Come to Sorrento to enjoy the sun, surf, restaurants and especially the Sorrento Bowls Club.
