Will Esterhuizen – bowls national champions for the third year running.

The 35th edition of the national lawn bowls championships came to an end last Saturday. After seven action packed days of competition the outstanding players were crowned at the Eros Bowling Club near the Safari Court Hotel in Windhoek.
Diana Viljoen of the coastal Rossmund Bowling Club and Will Esterhuizen (TransNamib Bowling Club) were victorious in the prestigious category, Champion of Champions. Esterhuizen, who triumphed in that event for the third time in a row, also managed to take top honours in the men’s singles.
The best female player overall was Sheena du Toit from the host club, who defeated Marie van der Merwe (Windhoek Country Club) in a tightly contested final. The doubles title was taken by the father-son-combination of Douw and Jurie Calitz, while Heleen Rust and Erna Muller formed the most successful ladies pair.
Willie Esterhuysen, Johan Jacobs and Otto Krauhenbull set the pace in the triplet category. Amongst the female competitors, Jean Joubert, Sheena du Toit and Lesley Vermeulen were in a class of their own.
The four-men-team of Tollie Cronje, Ewald Vermeulen, Piet Appollis and Axel Krauhenbull went all the way to lift the trophy in the elite discipline of the championships.
