Welcome to the 2017 bowling year.

Check our facebook page:  Auckland Indoor Bowls.


Auckland Indoor Bowls Centre had the Mixed Pairs today, there were 8 qualifiers from 26 entries. Emerging from the pack as victors was the team of Colin Williams and Jenny Stockford, they defeated the team of Alex Reed and Mesha White by a scoreline of 8 points to 6 in the final. This was the 3rd Centre title for both players. Losing semi finalists were the teams of Rodney Mills and Myrtle Wilson who lost to Reed's team and Neil Gash and Doreen Keats who lost to Williams' team.

Auckland Indoor Bowls Centre held our first Centre event today. Coming out with top honours was the Te Atatu combination of Simon Poppleton, Barry Kinnaird and Lisa Cross. They defeated Rodney Mills, George Paice and Myrtle Wilson in the final by a score of 17 points to 10 over 9 ends. The final was an enthralling one with big scores going to both teams. This win marks the first Auckland titles for both Simon and Lisa and for Barry it marked his 14th title, having won his title more than 40 years ago in 1976-amazing longevity in the game.
For Mills and team the final marked the second consecutive triples final that they've made, an impressive achievement in itself.
The losing semi finalists were the Te Atatu combination of Neil Gash, Ken Gash and Sue Liddel (Ken and Neil won the player of the year jointly back in 1986 so impressive longevity there too) and the Portage combo of Jim Patterson, Jim Topliss and John Walters.
Was a great event to start the season and look forward to the next one.

Waikato Indoor Bowls Representatives won the Bankier Rosebowl inter-district tournament between, Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Thames Valley, North Taranaki, Waikato and King Country for the fourth year in a row at the Rotorua Sportsdrome at the weekend after a titanic struggle with North Taranaki.
Waikato went through the tournament unbeaten but the result hung in the balance until the last round of fours when they played North Taranaki and needed to win... one of the four games of fours to clinch the title.
All players had played fourteen games each over the weekend and it came down to this last round.
Earlier in the tournament Waikato had won the singles against North Taranaki 24-8 and North Taranaki had won the pairs 15-9, so Waikato led 33-23. The last round of fours saw North Taranaki win three games but it was not enough to overcome Waikato who clinched the title by just half a game 37-35 in a real nail biter. If North Taranaki had forced a draw in that other game of fours they would have won as they had superior overall game points.
Waikato’s top player was Joy Archer with twelve wins (24 pts) followed by Wayne Logan 23 pts, Candace Andrew, John Steer, Rochelle Hastie and Linda McCurdy recorded 22 pts each.
North Taranaki’s John Zittersteijn was the top scorer. He was unbeaten with 13 wins and two draws (28 pts). Grant l’Ami and Sean Ridley scored 25 points each.
Auckland’s top players were Steve Fisher and Colin Williams with ten wins and a draw.
Bay of Plenty’s top players were Simon Hatcher on debut and Lance Hansen who each won ten games.
First: Five wins: Waikato beat Bay of Plenty 44.5 – 27.5; Auckland 53-19; King Country 55.5 -16.5; Thames Valley 49-23 and North Taranaki 37-35.
Second: Four Wins: North Taranaki bt Bay of Plenty 39-33; Auckland 44-28; King Country 67-5 and Thames Valley 59.5 – 12.5.
Third: Three wins: Auckland bt Bay of Plenty 47-25; Thames Valley 42-30 and King Country 56-16.
Fourth: 2 wins: Bay of Plenty bt Thames Valley 47-25; King Country 49-23.
Fifth: 1 win: Thames Valley bt King Country 47.5 – 24.5.
