Mike O'Connor (Snr) - BGN


I started bowls 33 years ago when I hurt my back in a rugby match and was advised to try something else, the answer was easy - BOWLS. My Mom and Dad  had played bowls my entire childhood, both being champions in their own right. My Dad being an Air Force Champion and my Mom being an Open Inter-District Champion, skipping Northern Transvaal and Western Province. She also won the All Transvaal Ladies Singles and Western Province Singles. After playing bowls for two months, I won the Boland Defence Club Men’s Singles. I played provincial bowls for Griqualand West , won a few Inter- Provincial  Golds in the “B” side,  one skipping the BGN Open Team and winning the 2019 Inter-District. I am a proud  father of my son, Mike Jnr who I have helped since he was 13 years old. We have had an awesome time in SA Bowls as a Father and Son combo. Bowls being a one sport for life has given us an awesome bonding opportunity, so proud of my son.  Awesome being a Taylor Ambassador,  it is really the best bowls available, having tried many.
