Rock ‘n’ Bowls have been crowned 2016 sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion cham­pi­ons at the Kar­ratha Bowl­ing Club af­ter a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory in the grand fi­nal last week.

The team of City of Kar­ratha em­ploy­ees did it eas­ily in the end, ac­count­ing for the Parks and Wildlife staff’s Balls of Fire, 25-5.

Rock ‘n’ Bowls spokesman Leon My­burgh said the team had en­joyed so­cial­is­ing and meet­ing new peo­ple dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

“Henry (Ea­ton) came in for us half­way through the sea­son and didn’t do too badly,” he said.

“Katie is a first timer and she has turned out pretty good.

“We came here for the en­joy­ment, but a win is good, too.”

Kar­ratha Bowl­ing Club pres­i­dent Graeme Wilkes said the sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion had been well con­tested and en­joy­able for teams.

“We have one more lot of cor­po­rate bowls to go, start­ing (next) week, then that will be it un­til the end of the year,” he said.

“The new-look green should be down by Fe­bru­ary next year.

“I think a lot more teams will be itch­ing at the bit to come down and play on the awe­some new green.”

The fi­nal round of cor­po­rate bowls be­gins this Tues­day, where teams of at least four will com­pete over a 10-week pe­riod.
