Campi Won by North West

25 Aug 2017

The 2017 Campi Junior Coaching Tournament was played in variable weather at Epsom Bowling Club last weekend (19th & 20th August). The format was 2 bowl triples and was contested by 19 teams from each zone. For the past 10 weeks, Junior Coaching has been held within 5 zones in Auckland, Central at Epsom, North West at Hobsonville, West at New Lynn, East at St Heliers and South East at Howick. We thank these clubs for the use of their facilities during this time.

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. It was great to see the youngsters out there playing in these events. The unpredictable Auckland weather caused us to abandon one game on Saturday afternoon, so the ladies played 7 games in total.

This was the 32nd Anniversary of the Campi Tournament and it was a privilege to have Mrs Bev Campi come out on Sunday to present the prizes.

Thanks must go to the Convenors and the Coaches who have willingly assisted at each venue who imparted 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.
