I love playing for the Ospreys: Stewart

by Val Febbo

Australian Jackaroo Chloe Stewart says that despite vacating her position at the Tweed Heads Bowling Club to undertake a sales and marketing role at SParms, she will still be suiting up for her beloved Tweed Heads Ospreys in the Bowls Premier League (BPL).

Speaking on Bowls Australia’s ‘Without Bias’ program, the three-time BPL champion is excited to undertake the new role, especially considering her role as a brand ambassador.

“They’re growing and developing and it’s fantastic to be on board as I’ve been an ambassador for them over the past two years,” she said.

“So now to be more involved and to get into marketing is pretty exciting.

“I’m one hundred percent still going to be an Osprey, I just won’t be working at the club.

“I think it’s going to be a good challenge for me because there’s a lot of talk about having a good work, life and bowls balance, so this might help to work an environment that’s away from the bowls club a little.”

The Tweed Heads Ospreys have become the juggernaut of the BPL, claiming three of the past four events including the two editions so far in 2021, with the 25-year-old still in disbelief about the franchise’s quick success.

Stewart, along with teammates Aaron Teys and Corey Wedlock were able to produce the most dominant tournament in history in April’s BPL13 at Club Pine Rivers, only suffering one blemish en route to the title.

“I still pinch myself about how well we did in the last two BPLs because it happens so fast so it’s not until later on that you reflect on it and think about how amazing it was,” Stewart said.

“They’re a great team and I’m honoured to play with those two guys and we have a lot of fun out there, even though sometimes I’m the serious one that puts the pressure on myself.

“But Corey and Teysie just make it light-hearted and we really enjoy it which helps us play some good bowls.”
