Thanks to our Sponsors


March saw our representative teams competing in the Bowls New Zealand National Intercentre annual tournament up in Wellington.

We had some good results in this competition with both teams qualifying for section play, and the women's team coming in 3rd overall.

We'd love to thank the sponsors and businesses that helped get our representative teams there by sponsoring a player shirt.
