Vale: Ray Tume

by BowlsSA4 on September 11, 2019

Bowls SA are saddened by the recent passing of Hall of Fame inductee and current State Games Record holder Ray Tume.

Ray first represented South Australia in 1982 and played his final State game in 2004. He represented South Australia 406 times which is a record that still has not been surpassed. He played in 22 consecutive Australian Sides Championships and was a regular member of the State ‘5-a-Side’ team and was appointed as the first Player’s Representative and retained that position until his retirement in 2004. Ray was the winner of the State Pairs, Triples and Fours titles, Runner-Up in the Australian Fours and Pairs and won 10 Club titles at Salisbury Bowling Club as well as holding senior administrative positions at the Club.

Ray Tume was inducted into the Bowls SA Hall of Fame at the 2011 Bowls SA Awards Night.

Bowls SA extends its sympathies and thoughts to Ray’s family and friends.
