Another cracker day in the Auckland Men’s and Women’s Pairs. In the Women’s competition Carlton Cornwall dominated with an incredible six teams out of 13 through to post-section. Last year’s winners Jo McKenna and Jenny Stockford (Pt Chevalier) will not be defending their title, beaten by Maria Smith and Carol Bennett (Onehunga & Districts) on NTOS in section play.
In the Men’s there’s no shortage of star players – young guns Aiden Takarua and Alex Reed are there coming off the back of their Bowls3Five Title, along with seasoned pros Mike Galloway and Martin Dixon (Royal Oak), Rob Ashton and Petar Sain (Carlton Cornwall) – to name but a few. The talent in post-section means today’s play will make for some great matches and superb bowls. Head along to Balmoral Bowling Club to check-out the action.
