Teachers and staff get sociable on the bowling green

Nastassja Potgieter, Sunelle van Eck and Janicke de Wet from Muldersdrift say this sport is more difficult than it looks.

Teachers and staff enjoyed themselves at the first schools’ bowling league.

The Krugersdorp Bowling Club recently implemented the Teachers’ School League, which consists of teachers and staff of various schools. Any school could enter any amount of teams. The club only had one requirement – the school had to be from the Krugersdorp area.

The league started at the beginning of November, with the club wanting to involve the school community to help grow its membership.

The club had their finals, which concluded with a prize-giving, on 16 November. The winning team was Hoërskool Monument, which has been in the running for the top spot for two weeks.

“The game is not for the weak and its more difficult than it looks,” said teacher Janicke de Wet.

When the News asked the younger teachers and staff how they felt about the sport they all said the sport is definitely not just for the elderly. The players were very competitive, but team-building was a core element.

“The game is very sociable and you get to meet a lot of new people,” said player Sunelle van Eck.

The club will be running the same event next year, and anyone that would like to join can contact the vice-president, Andy Shelby, via email to [email protected]
