Fisher hooked on Fitzroy Victoria

by admin on October 9, 2014

Dylan Fisher is already a household name in Victorian bowls and as one of the most promising young talents coming through the Australian ranks, it is no wonder a Victorian club has jumped at the chance to have him come on board.

Fitzroy Victoria Bowls and Sports Club has become one of the most proactive clubs in their region engaging the local community and providing opportunities for locals to try their hand at lawn bowls.

Fisher’s role at the club is to assist with coaching and mentoring members and community groups, develop opportunities for people to try bowls and enjoy the clubs facilities and to promote the Blundstone Melbourne Roys. 

Dylan Fisher is an inaugural member of the Blunstone Melbourne Roys, Fitzroy Victoria’s franchise in the Australian Premier League.

The Australian Premier League kicked off last year with six teams competing for the $110,000 prize purse broadcast live on Fox Sports, providing unprecedented exposure never seen before in bowls.

Fitzroy Victoria showed confidence in the APL by becoming an inaugural licensee and it was Dylan Fisher, Matthew Flapper and Graeme Archer that represented the Roys, and will do so again in 2014. 

From November 18 to 21, APL02, the second installment of Australia’s most exciting bowls event, gets under way at Club Pine Rivers in Brisbane, where eight teams will go head-to-head.  

Fisher has been promoting the Blunstone Melbourne Roys with positive use of social media networks Facebook and Twitter and developing Melbourne Roys’ membership packages to encourage the Melbourne bowls community to support his team. 

“This year the Roys want to create a family based culture that encourages the community to support the team, and we are offering member only privileges that create a sense of importance for our members; if you support us we will support you,” Fisher said. 

The APL is a positive investment for the Fitzroy Victoria Bowling and Sports Club and according to Fisher the Roys will be a team to be reckoned with in 2014. 

“I think we learned a lot from last year in regards to tactics with the power-plays and substitutions,” Fisher said.

“We know our strengths and we intend to use them to our advantage and I’m positive we can go one step forward this year and make the finals.”

Fisher is also actively engaging with the community with an emphasis on school groups that use the Jr. Jack Attack kits and AASC programs.

Jr. Jack Attack kits are child friendly soft rubber bowling equipment that can be taken to schools and utilised on any surface encourage participation.
