Everglades appoints national bowler
Beth Quinlan has been appointed the bowls coordinator at Everglades Country Club.
General manager Mr Greg Hornby said: "Beth is passionate about her bowls and still competing at national level," said Mr Hornby.
"She is keen to develop bowlers of all ages at club level and to promote junior bowls on the Peninsula.
"We are very excited about the future of bowls at Everglades," Mr Hornby said.
During her 20 year bowling career, Ms Quinlan has represented the Northern Territory and NSW and had won state titles, club championships and Bowler of the Year at St Johns Park Bowling Club.
She was nominated for the Northern Territory Sportsperson of the Year and was awarded the Steve Abala Role Model, Administrator's Medal in 1994 while living in Darwin.
She was selected to skip a side in the Australian Sides Championships and also in the Super Six Series last year where her good form earned her a gold medal.
She has been reselected for both in April at Broadbeach Queensland.
She represented Australia in India in 2010 to play in an eight-nations tournament and came home with a silver medal.
She has been reselected for the Australian Bowls squad and said she was hoping for selection in the Australian team to play World Bowls in Adelaide in December.
"Beth has brought to Everglades a wealth of experience in the organisation and planning of future tournaments that will put Everglades on the map," said Mr Hornby.
"At the same time, she is taking on the added role of chairperson of the Joint Bowls Committee which should result in a more cohesive approach to bowls at Everglades."
