The 2023 Maccabi national lawn bowls carnival recently concluded at Mermaid Beach Bowling Club on the Gold Coast. Over 50 players, hailing from Maccabi Victoria, NSW, WA, Qld, and SA, descended on the venue, creating a buzz with their skilful play and friendly banter.

WA’s Strong Performance The WA team, responsible for the management of this year’s carnival, showed strong form, taking home the Men’s Shield and impressing in both pairs and triples competitions.

Victoria and Women’s Sport A highlight of the carnival was Victoria clinching the Women’s Shield. This victory underscores a broader narrative: 2023 has been a spectacular year for women in sport. Victoria’s triumph is another testament to the growing prominence and recognition of women athletes across various disciplines.

Notable Players The carnival also recognised individual players who left an impact:

  • Leonie Simms from Queensland: Awarded the Outstanding Prospect Award.
  • Nathan Ashkenazi from WA: Recipient of the Warren Zines Mensch Award.
  • Dafna Orbach from NSW: Earned the Jack Brandon Carnival Personality Award.

Beyond the Game More than just a competition, the carnival provided an avenue for players from different states to reconnect. It was a time for sharing experiences, rekindling old ties, and forging new ones.

In wrapping up, the 2023 Maccabi national lawn bowls carnival was a memorable event that celebrated the game, its players, and the spirit of fellowship that defines it.
