Campi Won by West
Second year in a row!
27 Aug 2015
The 2015 Campi Junior Coaching Tournament was played in good weather at Epsom Bowling Club last weekend. The format this year was changed back to triples due to the lower number of players.
There were 18 teams, the camaraderie on the greens was awesome, there were some very tight games and you could see the continuous improvement of the bowlers throughout the weekend. For some bowlers this was their first ever tournament they have played in.
This was the 30th Anniversary of the Campi Tournament and it was a privilege to have Mrs Bev Campi come out on Sunday to watch some games and to present the prizes.
For the past 11 weeks, Junior Coaching has been held within five zones in Auckland, Central at Epsom, North West at Te Atatu, West at Glen Eden, East at St Heliers and South East at Howick. We thank these clubs for the use of their facilities during this time.
Through the Academy of Coaching Course, a weekly training schedule was implemented and adopted at the venues. Thanks must go to the Convenors and the Coaches who have willingly assisted at each venue to implement the schedule and impart their knowledge to the `young' bowlers. The feedback received from junior bowlers is all positive and they have thoroughly enjoyed the coaching again over winter. A HUGE thank you to all the BOWLERS who have attended the sessions, all the coaches are proud of your development over this time. Bowlers - Don't forget to liaise and keep in contact with your coaches, they are only too willing to help you.
Results of the top three teams were extremely close. At the conclusion of eight games, there were three teams with seven wins, one team with six wins and two teams with five and a half wins.
