Bowls ACT thank all participants for being understanding with the weather conditions!!

Bowls ACT are pleased to announce that all singles championships have been run and won. Despite some changes in play due to the weather, all games were completed smoothly at all venues. Below you can find all of the results and a quick wrap of all Singles Championships.

State Singles Wrap

After a marathon Saturday with 3 games for the Men and 2 for the Women, the Semi-Finals were set for Sunday Morning with Peter Watts set to play against Matthew Sargeant and Jamie Smith up against Andrew Ashlin. In the Womens Chloe Morrison matched up against Jess Hogan and Mandy Stitt was taking on Leanne Birch. In the Mens Semi-Finals, both bowlers from Canberra Bowling Club were victorious with Matt Sargeant winning 25-7 and Jamie Smith winning 25-14. The Womens semi-Finals saw Chloe Morrison defeat Jess Hogan 25-19 and Leanne Birch getting the better of Mandy Stitt 25-14.

Both Finals saw a very high quality of bowls. Chole Morrison was clinical against Leanne Birch in a game where the score certainly does not reflect the game. Chloe was able to win 25-9, adding to her State Pairs title she won earlier in the year. In the Mens, both Matt and Jamie saved their best game for last. Jamie held the upper hand as he was up by 10 shots, but Matt fought back in style, running away with the game in the second half and winning 25-23.

Graded Reserve Singles Wrap

It was a mammoth weekend in the Graded Reserve singles as well as they were finishing up their sectional games and then heading into the knockout stages. The Semi Finals saw Robert Swale match up against Fiona Fleming and Ian Taylor playing against John McInnes. Both Semi-Finals were won in straight sets as Robert Swale won 16-1 in Set 1 and 7-6 in Set 2, and John McInnes defeated Ian Taylor 11-5, 10-8. In the Final, Robert Swale started strong claiming the first set 13-1. It was a much tighter affair in the second but Robert proved to be too strong again, claiming the second set 9-8.
