Busi­nesses to bat­tle it out on the green

Dalby Herald - - SPORT -

DALBY’S busi­ness com­mu­nity is ready to bat­tle it out against each other in the Dalby Bowls Club’s Mer­can­tile Bowls Com­pe­ti­tion.

The comp starts next Wed­nes­day, and busi­nesses will field teams of four in the friendly chal­lenge.

Or­gan­iser Keith Teakle said the chal­lenge had been held for more than 10 years, and had al­ways been a hit with the com­mu­nity.

He said while the chal­lenge was four weeks of fun for all in­volved, it was also im­por­tant for the bowls club.

“It’s to in­tro­duce dif­fer­ent peo­ple to the game of bowls, get more use out of our fa­cil­i­ties and dis­play those fa­cil­i­ties to other peo­ple,” Mr Teakle said.

He said the com­pe­ti­tion had al­ways had a healthy com­pet­i­tive­ness.

“We’ve been lucky that one team hasn’t dom­i­nated it over the years, it’s been spread around who wins it,” he said.

Mr Teakle said there was still one team place re­main­ing, and also said spec­ta­tors were wel­come.
