Business house crowns new bowls winner

BANKING giants ANZ fought off a tough challenge from Humes to take out the Business House Lawn Bowls title on Thursday night.

Banana Cup title holders Wise Bake and Vilisoni Vakatalai combined well with Eremasi Ravula, David Dudley and Melvin Lee along with other teammates to win the final 14-13 at the Suva Bowling Club.

FDB 1 thrashed Suva Bowling Club 32-5 to win the plate final while TFL defeated FDB II 18-7 to win the bowl final and Geotech won the Spoon final with a 26-6 victory over Westpac.

This was the second business house event for the year and club manager Sanjeevan Nair said they were looking forward to the third event on August 28.

"The competition ran for the past six weeks and we have seen the interest rise among the corporate organisations," he said.

"This is sport for all ages but most of the staff at corporate organisers are over 30 and this is the best non-contact sport for them."

Nair said they were looking for sponsors for the next event to sponsor prizes for the winning teams.

"Sponsorship is very hard to come by and so it would be really helpful if one of the corporate organisations were to support us in hosting the business house competition."
