Donna Rock from Gillingham bowled her way through to the Bowls England Finals at Royal Leamington Spa last week. After some intense matches when she played amazingly well, she was just beaten by the Commonwealth Games gold medallist from Devon. Gillingham Bowling Club congratulated Donna for being runner-up in the National Finals of the Women’s Two Wood Competition – she has now made it to Gillingham’s honours board.
Donna joined the club in 2012 as a new player and after coaching, proved to be an excellent bowler and now has also qualified as a coach. Her competitive spirit took her up through matches and competitions to be the club’s Ladies Captain this year. The club says that Donna’s ‘brilliant achievements’ will inspire all new bowlers, their 43 lady members and of course their male bowlers too.
