This week the Bowls Canterbury Centre Green has been buzzing with Tamariki and Rangatahi using the Centre Green. The Centre Green was used not only for the CAIMS Year 7/8 student Pairs event, but also for the Canterbury Secondary Schools Regional Singles and Triples Championships.
On Tuesday 16 March, 48 students from six different schools. This was a modified Pairs game, where one player would play four bowls and their teammate would then score that end and play the bowls back. This allowed students to develop their skills more quickly over the course of the day. We had to unfortunately call the last two rounds off due to bad weather. We awarded two schools first equal and two schools third equal.
1st = St Thomas College Blue & Kirkwood Intermediate 2
3rd = Chisnallwood Intermediate Red & Casebrook Primary B

On Wednesday 17 March, the Centre Green was again host to 24 Secondary School students from six different schools competing in Bowls3Five Singles and Triples. It was great to see the level of competition increase every year this event is held. Thanks must be given to the Clubs that support the Wednesday Sport Programme, Morrison Ave BC and Cashmere BC. By having multiple opportunities for Rangatahi to practice and develop their skills before this event is fantastic.
Winner of the Singles was Jack Bonner from Cashmere High. Jack is also a student member of Barrington United BC. The Triples winners were the Papanui High team, Jamie Veitch, Nathaniel Kilpatrick, and Luke Burling. These students have been attending Wednesday Sport – Lawn Bowls at Morrison Ave BC for the past 4 weeks.
There were other students who are also members at Bowling Clubs in Canterbury.
- Callum Lucas – Burnside BC
- Jayden Owens – Burnside BC
- Jacob Inch – Oxford BC
We had a lot of helpers on both days and we would like to extend our thanks to them for putting their hands up – having someone guiding these young people makes there experience more rewarding so therefore more enjoyable.
