Oceania Lawn Bowls Challenge 2023

Family affair at the Oceania Lawn Bowls Challenge 2023

The competition was set up to help bowlers from across the region gain experience and knowledge in the sport, especially as there will be no lawn bowls competition at this year’s Pacific games in Honiara.

Tagata Pasifika reports Brett O’Riley, who is the Oceania Regional Director for lawn bowls, says that those tournaments are key for Pacific and Māori bowlers. Discussion between him and NZ Lawn Bowls led to the establishment of this tournament.

“This tournament is the perfect idea for the growth of participation in Māori and Pacific communities,” O’Riley says.
