2023 ACT Pairs Draw

by Bowls ACT on February 1, 2023

Bowls ACT are proud to release the draw for the 2023 ACT Pairs Championship to be played at Queanbeyan Bowls Club and Queanbeyan RSL Memorial Bowling Club and thank both clubs for supporting the event.

Due to the fantastic number of entries received Bowls ACT request all players check the draw for their start time and venue with Men & Women playing at both venues.

  • Four Womens second round games will be played in the morning of Saturday Feb 11. These games are:
    • Harmer & Bacchetto v Blandy & Grigg – QBC 9.30am
    • Schipp & McGown v Van Gerven & Hogan – QBC 9.30am
    • Webster & Tse v Warren & Stitt – QRSLM 9.30am
    • Donney & Pritchard v Mazins & Blunden – QRSLM 9.30am

  • All games from the third round onward will be played at Queanbeyan RSL Memorial Bowling Club. This has been done to prevent players having to travel between clubs during a days play. As such only one round will be played on Sunday Feb 12 with Women’s games drawn in the morning and Men’s games in the afternoon.

Bowls ACT & the match committee appreciate the unusual aspects of the draw, but have made the decision due to entry numbers, green space available, feedback from prior competitions and the knowledge that travelling between venues during a days play is highly undesirable. Members with questions may discuss the draw by calling or emailing Bowls ACT.
