U25 & 40-59 QLD Women claim QLD vs NSW Tests
Congratulations to Queensland’s U25 Women and age 40-59 Women who claimed the shield for these tests today at Taren Point Bowling Club in NSW.
Unfortunately today (day 2, August 23) was a washout with rain driving players off the green during the third test. Although the games were live streamed by Bowls NSW, it reached a point where they had to stop live streaming due to the weather.
The U25 Men drew, which meant NSW retains the trophy for another year.
The Open Women weren’t able to continue due to the weather, so will be playing the third test at the Australian sides in October. The Open Men lost to NSW.
The QLD U25 Women won 2-0, with the age 40-59 Men and Women drawing 1-all. As this was the first series played in this age category, the series win was decided on aggregate score. NSW won the men’s and QLD won the women’s tests.
