Bowls champions to be crowned
Transnamib looks set to complete the podium in the men’s category, but Namib Park is still in contention and could stage a surprise.
In the ladies competition the Eros Bowling Club team have had a tremendous season, beating their opponents by an average margin of 12 shots in every game. The league title is however not guaranteed and they will need to beat either Namib Park or Rossmund to secure the top spot this coming weekend. The race for second place is also tightly contested with Rossmund and Windhoek country club being the two main contenders for the minor podium placings. Windhoek Country Club has the advantage of three home games on Saturday and that could help them pip the coastal team.
The mixed division sees Tsumeb, Transnamib and Rossmund level on points at the top of the log, however Rossmund’s recent record of two wins by a margin of 30 shots per game makes them clear favourites in the Mixed division. The second place is wide open with six of the seven clubs in the running.
The overall national league title is contested by clubs participating in all three divisions. Only Eros and Rossmund Bowling Club are in contention for this title. Defending champions, Rossmund, look set to retain their title, but a perfect home record on Saturday could see Eros take the limelight.
The Namibian Bowling Association also hosted a technical officials course in Windhoek from 12-14 July, which was presented by the Convener and the Secretary of the Bowls South Africa Technical Officials Standing Committee. The presenters, Neville Savange and Renee Venter are both level 4 technical officials and have completed their international certification.
