HEAVY rain yesterday afternoon almost brought an early end to day one competition of the first ever mixed singles bowling event at the Suva Bowling Club.
Organisers were not deterred by the downpour and continued to play despite the light drizzle.
Competition official Michael Ng said it was the first time they were trying out the mixed singles tournament.
He said 30 bowlers from around Suva entered the tournament.
"We have five pools of six players and the winners of each pool and three best second ranked players will advance to the quarter-finals which will be played tomorrow (today)," Ng said.
Round four was not completed when this edition went to press.
"After some games in round four, Sai Walker leads sections A with six points from three wins from four matches.
"Suren Prasad is unbeaten in four games as he leads Section B and in section C, the lead is shared between Joseph Hae and Mata Naua."
