Three straight for top junior bowls pairing
Last weekend saw the “‘junior bowlers - 1 to 5 years” take centre stage and congratulations to Skye Renes and Barbara Hopper who won the women’s competition for the third year in a row when they defeated Denise Barnes and Maggie Lawson from Ngunguru in the final.
In the men’s division, it was success for Graham Ball and partner G. Wilson (Waipū) when they defeated W. Catchpole & K. Lark (Mangawhai) 16-15 in a very close final.
Well done to all players and thanks to Mangawhai, Whangārei and centre officials who worked to make this event a success.
