Gosford City Bowling Club has named Brandon Wilmette as its new President.
Brandon Wilmette is a 19-year-old powerhouse bringing a fresh new look to Gosford City Bowling Club.
Wilmette began his bowling journey at 13 years old, inspired by his grandfather. In just six years, Wilmette quickly became a name to beat.
Wilmette’s experiences both on and off the green shaped his journey to presidency, with Major Fours, Triples, Pairs, Minor Tripes and Major Minor Pairs championships under his belt, amongst U18 Zone singles and fours achievements. This led him to become the chair of the Match committee and begin his rise to the top.
“I feel very inspired that the members of the Club have elected me as their President. It’s a great honour to represent a Club with 90 years of history.” Wilmette says.
“Our mission is to foster and promote the game of Lawn Bowls to the local community through a positive environment that invites family-friendly and supportive activities.”
Wilmette is a force to be reckoned with, as Ex School Captain of Henry Kendall High School and a State Level Lions youth of the year finalist. He currently combines his time as president with studies at Macquarie University (Bachelor of Arts and Secondary Education majority in Ancient History and minoring in Geography).
As a young person in a position of power, Brandon has a unique opportunity to uplift Central Coast youth to join a sport often forgotten whilst bringing a fresh mind to a timeless sport.
“Enjoy a sport that is relaxed and casual while still being competitive. It’s for the young, the young at heart and for those of all abilities. Come give it a try!” Wilmette says
Brandon becomes the youngest President of Gosford City Bowling Club in it’s 90-year history, he succeeds Guy Robins who oversaw the previous growth of the club.
