Warilla celebrated their magnificent NSW Women’s Grade-1 pennants championship victory with an official flag unfurling ceremony.
Warilla beat the best teams in the state at the NSW finals at Nelson Bay BC in August.
They marked the occasion with a bowls day and a flag unfurling ceremony.
State women’s president Robyn Procter was a special guest on the day, along with Illawarra District women’s bowls president Thelma Lever.
The members of the winning Warilla Grade-1 team were on hand for the occasion, which was preceded by a game of bowls and followed by a celebration luncheon.
Warilla were unbeaten at the state finals, winning their section by the narrowest of margins – half a point – from Bomaderry, who lost their last match to hand the section to Warilla.
The South Coast club then beat St Johns Park [who won the state Grade-1 title in 2010 and again in 2011] in a two-round final.
This year Warilla entered two teams in the Illawarra District Women’s Grade-1 pennants competition and only earned a crack at the state title following a remarkable battle with Wiseman Park, which continued until the final day of the season.
