Festival of Bowls – 3rd & 4th February 2024

Meg ParfittNews

Traditionally Bowls Canterbury has hosted the Super Sixes over the first weekend in February for teams from Dunedin, South Canterbury, Marlborough, Buller and Nelson. This year we are introducing opportunities for Centre Development teams because there are very few competitions for these teams other than Zone events.  Under 26’s (pairs) because we need more opportunities for our young bowlers.

We also recently met with our senior team selectors, and they are keen to field a Canterbury Senior Reserve team during the Festival of Bowls weekend.

Super Sixes – senior Intercentre squads of up to 10 players – confirmed are Buller, Nelson, Marlborough, South Canterbury, Dunedin, and Canterbury.
Development teams – pre zone competition squads – please indicate if you will be participating.
Under 26’s pairs – any combination and if a player does not have a partner, we will find one – please make sure any Under 26 players in your Centre knows about this and ask them to confirm with us their intention.
Senior Reserve team competition – this will be an any combination competition; we will match up players if you don’t have enough to send a full team – please advise if you will be entering as a team or individual players.

We are wondering if other Centres would have enough players to put in a second senior team or part of a second team. We have players who are nearly but not quite at the senior Intercentre level but they need more competitive opportunities to grow their game and we want to keep them in the game, and so provide them with more and different competition.   

Please let us know if you are likely to send a team/s or players to any of these events.
