STU­DENT DIS­COV­ERS LOVE OF BOWLS

Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE - BRIAN McLEAN

Xanti Xanywa’s favourite sports used to be hockey and wa­ter­polo, but now it’s bowls.

The grade 9 Dale Col­lege pupil was in­tro­duced to the sport two months ago by fel­low school­mate Josh Turner, who also gave him a brief coach­ing ses­sion.

“I en­joyed my first game. I felt I did well so de­cided to keep play­ing.

“I like the so­cial side of the game and it’s re­ally a fun but chal­leng­ing sport,” Xanywa said.

Xanywa said his fa­ther Thamile, who is a traf­fic of­fi­cer, had told him he wanted to try out bowls next year.

His dream is that he is cho­sen for one of the Bor­der teams which an­nu­ally travel to Bloem­fontein, where a na­tional de­vel­op­ment tour­na­ment is held each year.

When Xanywa is not play­ing for Dale’s Un­der 16B hockey team and U15A wa­ter­polo team, one can hardly keep the young man off the green.
