Tenpin Bowling Australia would like to congratulate the participants named Patroller Girl of the Year during the 2021 Bowl Patrol Annual Awards.
At the end of each year, Tenpin Bowling Australia’s Bowl Patrol program acknowledges those participants, known as Patrollers, who have shown commitment and enthusiasm among other great bowling qualities. Nominees and winners might be considered through a number of ways including overcoming barriers, listening to the Lane Ranger and extra effort to increase her skill level.
Throughout 2021 there were 73 Bowl Patrol programs across 20 centres in all States and Territories with over 641 participants.
Congratulations to the following patrollers:
Isla Bursell – ACT (Zone Bowling Tuggeranong)
Isla is an enthusiastic patroller, who is attentive to detail and puts into practice what she has learnt which saw her achieve her green band. During the Family Fun Day, Isla confidently helped her sister by teaching her how to hold and deliver the ball. It was great to see her relaying what she had learnt during the year.
Summa Martinson – Western Australia (Bunbury Tenpin Bowl and Family Fun Centre)
Summa started Bowl Patrol along with her brother in Term 2, 2021. Over three terms she has consistently progressed, and late in Term 4, she graduated off carpet lanes to full-length lanes. Summa concentrates hard on always performing the right technique and takes on any feedback the Lane Rangers give her. She’s now got a perfectly balanced one-step delivery but most importantly, Summa always has a smile on her face.
Isabelle Hinds – Queensland (Caboolture Bowl)
Isabelle was an enthusiastic Patroller at Caboolture’s Term 4 program in 2021. She showed up each week eager to learn and also encouraged other patrollers in her program. Isabelle consistently made great progress each week and the Bowl Patrol program at Caboolture can’t wait to see her excel further in the future.
Bronte Mallinson – Tasmania (Launceston Lanes)
Bronte has participated in several Bowl Patrol programs throughout 2021. In Term 3, Bronte alongside the 2020 Bowl Patroller Boy of the Year, became the first-ever patrollers from Launceston to gain their blue band with a score of 60. This has encouraged her to return each week with more motivation to start mastering a four-step approach.
Amelia Rawlings – South Australia (Zone Bowling Noarlunga)
While Amelia would score in the high 20’s, she never quite got the 30 she needed to progress to the next wristband. However, Amelia continued to try her best until a couple of weeks before the end of 2021, she bowled a score of 32 to get her white band before bowling a 31 to receive her yellow band.
Charlotte Armstrong – Victoria (Oz Tenpin Star Bowl Shepparton)
Charlotte has an outstanding attitude with her learning, showing up to bowl in her spare time. She is currently learning to bowl two-handed, just like the Bowl Patrol ambassador Jason ‘Belmo’ Belmonte. As Charlotte continues her Bowl Patrol journey, her skills will continue to improve.
