Jenny Burton-Douglas started bowling when she was 12 years old and remembers using a house ball and the ever-stylish house shoes in her introduction to the sport.
After joining a league at the Canberra Squash Bowl, it wasn’t long before Jenny knew that tenpin bowling was the sport for her and that she would play this game for a long time.
Jenny first represented Australia at the 1983 World FIQ in Caracas. At the 2005 World Masters Games in Edmonton, the Canberran came away with gold and bronze medals in the singles and Masters events, respectively.
A constant in the ACT representative teams, Jenny continues to look to improve her physical and mental game. She likes to keep fit to ensure she minimises the chance of injury and to maximise her chance to stay competitive.
She loves bowling because after all these years she still enjoys all aspects of the game from working on her game during practice sessions and seeing improvements, to being competitive with friends at tournaments and simply to have fun.
When she isn’t bowling, Jenny enjoys photography, cross-stitching, playing the piano, travelling and riding her ebike.
