Rapanui Bowls Programme - 27/10/2023
Article written by: Denise Morland (Club Redcliffs - Organiser of programme)
Over the last two weeks of term 3 Club Redcliffs undertook what is to be our annual bowls coaching sessions for years 5-8 students of Redcliffs and Mt Pleasant Schools with the help of Erica from Bowls Canterbury. They are such a lovely group of young people, always respectful and most enjoy the experience of learning how to play a different sport. On Friday morning 13 October 50 plus young bowlers played enthusiastically in a Kiwi Games bowls pairs tournament followed by a sausage sizzle and prizegiving. This year each school fielded 12 teams each and were very closely matched in play, each school receiving $500 each. We are always grateful for the great support from our club members who give up their time to support this worthwhile event.
