Bowling battle

SIXTEEN teams are confirmed for the third Business House Lawn Bowls competition to be played on Thursday at the Suva Bowling Club.

The competition has drawn a lot of interest from corporate organisations in the Capital City and plans are in the pipeline to expand the competition and to have more events.

Club vice-president Martin Fong said some new bowlers impressed many during the past two business house competitions that they hosted.

"The business house competition is a means to promote the sport and to increase participation in the sport," he said.

"And we also managed to identify some new bowlers from the business house competition, some who are now competing in the Suva league."

Meanwhile, the club managed to secure sponsorship for this competition.

Humes, losing finalists from the second business house, have stepped up to pledge $6000 for the event.

Humes representative Sai Tokalau said they saw the success of the last two business house events and wanted to contribute towards the success of the third one.

He added it was also a good ground for Humes to market itself.

"Sports is an idea area for us to promote our products and services," he said.

"I hope with this sponsorship, the club will ensure the business house event is a success."

ANZ won the second business house event and are the top seeds for the third event.

Some of the other teams that participated in the second competition were FNPF, FASANOC, Westpac, Geotech, FDB, Bank of Baroda, TFL and BSP.
