News Team Henselite Tiffany Brodie is on a roll
May 6, 2016

To say it’s been a big year so far for Tiffany Brodie is an understatement. The pint-sized 17-year-old has taken Victorian bowls by storm over the 2015/16 season, winning both the Under 25 and Under 18 State Singles as well as the State Fours.

But while it may appear that she’s just burst into the top flight of Victorian bowls, Tiffany is under no illusions as to how she has managed to get there. It’s her hard work and determination behind the scenes that have led to her on green success. “I have learnt how important drills are,” she said, “so I get out there and do them. It's not something that just happens, and it's very rewarding to see my many hours of training and practising a week paying off”

When she’s on the green, Tiffany bowls with a maturity and focus beyond her years. These qualities combined with her strong work ethic saw her selected in the Victorian senior side in 2015, following up again in 2016 for the Australian Sides Championship in April. Many observers think she will be a permanent fixture there for several years to come.

Tiffany began her lawn bowls career as a 15 year old after playing indoor bowls on carpet with her mum and grandma, a format in which she also excels. “I do still play indoor carpet bowls,” she said, “but I don't play as much now as I'm focusing on my outdoor bowls.”

Tiffany, who plays at Fitzroy Victoria BC, uses Henselite Dreamline XGs. “I love how they have a consistent line on any surface whether it would be on the quick greens up north or on the slower greens we have here in Victoria”, she said. She will have plenty of opportunity to use them on the quicker greens on the Gold Coast when she heads up for the Australian Open in June. With perhaps the heaviest possible program, Tiffany has entered the singles, pairs, fours, Under 18 singles and Hearing Impaired Singles where she will be hoping to back up her title win in 2015.

When she’s not bowling the year 12 student also likes to spend as much time as she can with her family, especially her nieces & nephew.
