Did not quite finish. My grandson year 10 (plays bowls) has not mentioned the Secondary Schools Tournament. Is Bowls NZ doing enough in small towns to push bowls as an alternative sport other than cricket/netball/rugby etc. I enjoy your show keep up the good work

David Archer Paul Matheson trust you have watched & listened

Kaitaia Far North

We have tried with our Secondary Schools here Kaitaia in the past. I think that we need a Bowls NZ representative to talk to Sports Northland to get them to push the schools sports people into encourage students to try bowls. i.e. Use one of their sport periods to go to a local bowling club. I
