Grocott's Mail - - SPORT - By STEPHEN PEN­NEY

There is still time to en­ter a team into the an­nual Pep­per Grove Pick n Pay In­ter Com­pany Night Bowls League, based at the Gra­ham­stown Bowl­ing Club. The first games are sched­uled for Mon­day 30 Jan­uary.

The pop­u­lar event is now in its 23rd year and or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing for 60 en­tries. The night bowls have become a pop­u­lar event for busi­nesses, which or­gan­ise groups as a team-build­ing ex­er­cise. Many clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions en­ter for the sheer fun and en­ter­tain­ment.

Or­gan­is­ers hope that this taste of play­ing the game will spark in­ter­est and that some par­tic­i­pants will end up play­ing bowls on a more reg­u­lar ba­sis for the club.

In week one, bowlers will play on Mon­day, Tues­day and Wed­nes­day evenings.

From weeks two to five, games will be played on Tues­days and Wed­nes­days.

Games start at 6.30pm but play­ers are re­quested to be at the club at 6pm.

The fi­nal week of play, which is made up of knock­out games, takes place on Mon­day 6 March, with the var­i­ous fi­nals tak­ing place on Fri­day 10 March. For more in­for­ma­tion or to book a spot for your team, con­tact Phil McDou­gal at 046 622 9411. The clos­ing date for en­tries is 16 Jan­uary.
