Bowlers battle

MORE than 30 bowlers are expected to compete in the Banana Cup this weekend at the Suva Bowling Club.

Organisers have confirmed 15 pairs teams already and more are expected to register before entries close at 4pm today.

Club manager Sanjeevan Nair said the event was one of the most hotly contested trophies in their sport.

"We already have a good field of bowlers with players coming from as far as Labasa and Vatukoula for the Banana Cup," he said.

"From Labasa we have the father and son pair of Paul and Keegan Jaduram while the pair from Vatukoula is Netava Laqere and Eminoni Turagabeci and there are three teams coming from the West."

Nair said defending champions Vilisoni Vakatalai and Wise Baker would be back to defend their title and a team that could provide the biggest challenge would be the pair of Sai Tokalau and Semesa Naiseruvati.

Meanwhile, club trustee Terry Watson is back as the sponsor of the tournament, this time under the name of Rena Distributors.

"He has been sponsoring the event for the past eight years and we are really thankful to him for his commitment to the sport."
