At the age of 16 Kandos High School student Ty Pennell is proof that lawn bowls is not only an older person’s sport. Already a major singles champion at the Rylstone Men’s Bowling Club, his recent effort with the Combined High School team has confirmed a promising future ahead.
After playing in the CHS seven-a-side team at Orange he was picked to play in the pairs at Wallsend near Newcastle. He came home with a bronze medal for his effort there and was also awarded Player of the Competition.
Ty was then picked for the NSW Combined High School triples team for the State Championships at Port Macquarie and came home with Gold.
He has now been selected for the City-Country match and will play for the country team at Cabramatta in November. This follows a further recent selection to play for NSW in the Silver Tier.
