Interschool Delayed by Weather
12 Aug 2013
The Auckland Secondary Schools Interschool competition was due to commence today (Monday 12th August) but has been postponed due to the inclement weather.
When play does get underway next week it will be played at 3 venues throughout Auckland with Remuera as headquarters and Mt Eden and New Lynn Bowling Clubs the other 2 venues.
This year 16 teams will be out to prove that they are the best school at bowls in Auckland. Papatoetoe High School will have all new players and will have an uphill battle against last yearís finalists St Peterís College that field the same team as last year.
Schools will play in sections of 4 and the winners and runners up will qualify for the post section. Schools have trained for the past 6 weeks with coaches at the venues in readiness for the event.
This year will be a first for Auckland Schools as each team will have an accredited coach assisting their players. It will not only the battle of the schools but the battle of the coaches.
Auckland wish all players and coaches good luck for the tournament.
