Born in Broken Hill, Cheryl is a local who has shown a keen interest in many sports over the years. Despite having played softball, netball and demonstrating an aptitude for equestrian events and show jumping; lawn bowls is the sport in which Cheryl has earned Far West Champion status. Having sustained several injuries during her riding days, limiting her ability to deliver a lawn bowl, Cheryl adopted the bowling arm. This adaptation meant that Cheryl could enjoy the sport and, as her sporting history demonstrates, compete at the highest level of the sport, the National Championships.
Cheryl is a role model within the sport, demonstrating that despite injury or physical impairment, lawn bowls can still be enjoyed and played at the highest of levels. Outside of sport, Cheryl has a green thumb and enjoys spending her days in her garden.
