Wellington Tournament Review

Bowls Wellington has released its recommendations for changes to Interclub, Centre events etc. for next season and beyond. There are some very good ideas here and bodes well for the future of Wellington bowls.

Tawa picks up 2 centre titles

23 Apr Isabelle Hassall and Linda Rayner capped off a memorable afternoon for Tawa by winning the Wellington Club Pairs title at Naenae, beating the experienced Victoria duo of Sarah Taukamo and Helen King. Earlier Scott Johnson's triple had prevailed over a gallant Lyall Bay junior team skipped by Simon Bennett. This game can also be viewed on YouTube.

All roads lead to Naenae

11 Nov The long-awaited and much-delayed World Champion of Champions Singles finally gets underway at Naenae BC in Lower Hutt 19–25 November. There is a field of 30 for men and 16 for women, all playing 10 games over 5 days of sets-format pool play. Both genders need to finish in the top 6 to progress, with the top 2 getting a free pass to the semi-final. Live streaming will no doubt be on Bowls New Zealand's Youtube channel. This promises to be a very interesting and exciting event!
