Barfoot and Thompson $20,000 Royal Oak Bowls Premier Easter Triples Tournament
Friday 19, Saturday 20, Sunday 21 April 2019
The ninth Royal Oak Bowls $20,000 Easter Triples Tournament, sponsored by Barfoot and Thompson, has a fantastic looking field this year.
Taking place over three days (Friday 19 April, Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April), the tournament is one of Bowls NZ’s Summer of Bowls premium events and has attracted some of the nation’s biggest names in bowls. Entries include returning champions Kimberley Hemingway, Richard Hocking and Ashleigh Jeffcoat. Add in the experience of Nick Thompson, Selina Goddard and the Bowls 3Five Champion skip, Aiden Takarua to the incredibly strong team of Lisa Prideaux, Wendy Jensen and National Singles Champion Debbie White and it’s apparent that there’ll be some of the cream of New Zealand’s bowling talent on the greens at Royal Oak Bowls this Easter.
There’s a packed weekend of activity besides the bowls with a Saturday Night Shindig sponsored by Metlifecare Hillsborough Heights featuring The Tim Armstrong Band promising to be one of the highlights.
The Finals Day (Sunday 21 April, rain day Monday 22 April) will be streamed live on the Royal Oak Bowls Facebook page so if you’re out of town, you’ll have a chance to experience all the drama and the tension. But if you’re in Auckland, head down to Royal Oak Bowls for what promises to be an Easter Tournament to remember.
