bowls

The club has 2 AAA rated Greens competition greens which are recognised by Bowls South Africa for national competitions. The greens were named after Hackland and Sclanders, after past members who contributed to the maintenance and construction of the greens.

In 2004 the UCC Bowls Section had a membership of 78 members. When the Salt Rock bowls club closed down the membership increased to 100. We have since increased to an astounding 209 members. We have players who have represented national, provincial and district teams.

During the 2007 renovation, the clubhouse verandah was extended and closed in and a bar was built to accommodate the increasing numbers.

In 2010, Bowls South Africa used our greens and facilities to hold the Play-Off’s and finals of the National Mixed Pairs Championships. This was quite an achievement for a relatively small club.

Squash

The squash section of Umhlali Country Club has always enjoyed a reputation as being very sociable, fun-loving and family orientated, as well as being very hospitable when hosting other players from other clubs.

The squash section enjoys the best courts and club house facilities in the region. With improvements in place Umhlali began to attract many new members which enabled the section to compete strongly in the Dolphin Coast Squash Summer and Winter Leagues.

The roots of Umhlali Country Club’s Tennis section go way back many years ago before the concrete slabs were laid and five courts were erected in 1961 when the club was formed.

Once the old Umhlali Tennis Club was dissolved and in effect became the tennis section of Umhlali Country Club in 1961. Through the 1970’s and 1980’s the tennis section was well established with the traditional senior and junior tournaments continuing and local players enjoying their social tennis an some league tennis. For many years the Umhlali team dominated the league.

The 90’s saw the arrival of the club’s first resident coach – Roger Ferrandi (082 791 3326), who to this day still runs a successful academy and tournaments.

Since then a few changes have been made to their schedule. A group of Men have started playing on a Tuesday afternoon. We now hold social tennis on Saturdays from 1pm. The ladies play on a Tuesday and Friday morning.
