THE country's top bowlers will grace the 7th Sunny West Bowling Carnival at the Nadi Sports Club this weekend.

Players such as Semesa Naiseruvati, Abdul Kalim, Arun Kumar and Samuela Tui who have dominated local competitions will compete in the men's category while Sala Gukivuli, Litia Gukisuva, Doreen O'Connor and Martha Naua, some of the women's top bowlers will battle it out in the ladies competition.

The six-day carnival which kicks off tomorrow offers cash prizes and has also attracted overseas bowlers tournament's organising chairman, Mohammed Shorab Khan said,

"This year, in our endeavour to make this event bigger and better," he said in a statement.

"We welcome all overseas bowlers your participation is what makes this event special. To the local bowlers, thank you for your continued support."

Khan thanked the support from the Sonaisali Resort and Smugglers Cove Beach Resort to be part of the sponsorship team, joining Shop and Save Supermarkets who are into their fourth year of support.

Mike Jamieson, the Nadi Sports Club president wished all participants a good outing.

"The club has often been referred to as the best kept secret in Nadi and in many ways it is," he said.

"It offers a facility that is unmatched in Fiji with our large clubhouse and a bar that serves some of the most reasonable priced beverages in the country.

"The bowling green whilst we understand may not be as good as some of the international bowling greens, but is one of the best greens in Fiji and is host to many competitions and home to some of the country's top players."
