West pennants bowl championship postponed

THE opening round of the Islands Electric-sponsored Western Pennants Bowls Championship was postponed at the Nadi Sports Club yesterday.

This is after only two clubs turned up for the six-week competition.

Nadi Sports Club life member Shorab Khan said Vatukoula pulled out of the competition because their players had work commitments.

Khan said the competition would now start at a later date.

“Ba and Lautoka were not able to form their teams,” he said.

“So time has been given to them assemble their squads. The clubs will be allowed to field their women bowlers as well.”

Sheraton and Nadi were the only teams that turned up for the event yesterday.
