Open Singles Decided
The Bowls Wellington Open Singles took place over the weekend Nov 2-4 at clubs throughout Wellington.
Silverstream's Clare Hendra backed up her Open Singles win last season with another title, this time against Helen King 21-17 in a thrilling final at Island Bay. Adam Turner, also of Silverstream, went one better than 2018 taking out an equally thrilling final beating Sar Alefosio 21-20 in the men's tournament. This is only the second time that members from the same club have won both the Men's and Women's Open Singles. The previous time was 1975 when Seatoun achieved the feat.
Congratulations to everyone who took part. Bowls Wellington would also like to thank the tournament managers, umpires, host clubs and markers for helping the tournament run smoothly. Also thank you to New World Thorndon, New World Hutt City, New World Porirua and Bowls Specialists for your generous support.
