Well done Helen!

Well done to Helen King for coming runner-up in the Wellington Open Singles at the Hutt club on Sunday. Helen went down in a good final considering the blustery conditions 15-21 to Dale Rayner (Johnsonville). Helen’s second place puts Victoria at second place in the early standings for the Bowls Wellington Womens Club of the Year. Helen earlier had to account for daughter and mother Samantha (Kapiti Coast) then Leeane Sweeney (Wairarapa) in the quarterfinal and Semifinal.

The best of the Victoria men was Barry O’Brien who fought his way through to the quarterfinals before going down to eventual champion Adam Turner (Silverstream) 12-21. None of the three Victoria men who made the semifinals last year even qualified this season!

Well done Amber!

Congratulations to the Wellington Yr 1-5 Women on winning the WKWM Junior Rep fixture on Friday at Paraparaumu Beach. Wellington finished on 18 points, 2 ahead of 2nd placed Kapiti on 16 and well ahead of Manawatu and Wairarapa. Amber Down was the singles player for the victorious side and had 3 wins from her 3 matches.

Well done Robyn & Chris!

Congratulations to mother and son combination Robyn and Chris Rintoul who made the semifinals of the Wellington Mixed Pairs today at the Johnsonville club before going down in a fighting display to evntual winners Judy Howat (Lyall Bay) and Brent Stubbins (Johnsonville) 15-18. Robyn and Chris had earlier acounted for husband and dad Peter convincingly in the quarterfinal.

This meant Victoria is on the board early in the race for the 2017-18 Wellington Club of the Year race.
