Bowling association invites more to join

NAMPA

After successfully hosting the first leg of its 2021 national league, the Namibia Bowling Association (NBA) is calling on Namibians to join the sport of lawn bowling.

The NBA over the weekend hosted an Inland vs Coastal National League which saw TransNamib Bowling Club dominating the men’s Premier Division as well as the First Division while Eros Bowling Club dominated the Women Premier Division and Second Division League.

In an interview with Nampa on Tuesday, NBA president Michael Wells said the competition over the weekend was exciting and competitive but they still need more Namibians to take an interest in this exciting sport.

“We really want to grow the sport of bowling in the country and if anyone is interested in learning this exciting and vibrant game, they can contact our club representatives in Windhoek and the coastal towns,” he said.

The president added that this year there won’t be international bowling competitions but as a federation they have plans of hosting the African States Tournament in September.

“This is not a guarantee competition yet because we are still waiting to see what regulations the government will have in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic and if things don’t change, we will not host this event,” he said.

Wells also stated that the NBA will be hosting trials in two weeks’ time to select more players that can represent the national team when bowling gets back to competitions.

The second round of the lawn bowling national league is scheduled for 17 and 18 April with Namib Park Bowling and Rossmund Bowling clubs taking each other on in Swakopmund.

The third round will be held during the weekend of 03 and 04 July with Namib Park travelling to Windhoek to battle the central bowling clubs while the final round will take place during the weekend of 24 and 25 July, with central bowling clubs travelling to the coastal town of Swakopmund for the final showdown.

Wells echoed that those interested in joining the sports of bowling in Windhoek can contact Eros Bowls Club (Freddie Fouche – 081 124 1465), TransNamib Bowls Club (Anjuleen Viljoen – 081 292 2476) and Windhoek Bowls Club (Horst Zimny – 081 124 8514).
