  • NZ’s Social Hubs

    Bowls is a sport steeped in history and community, with many bowling clubs being over 100 years old and playing a huge part in community development as social hubs.

  • Get Involved

    With a strong traditional base, casual players who turn out for a roll up, and world class athletes, bowls is continually challenging the stereotype.

Good luck to all the bowlers competing in the 2019 Champion of Champions kicking off today with the mens and womens singles at Naenae Bowling Club! 

Keep up to date with results on the Bowls New Zealand website.

Any live streaming?

Hope so

There is no live stream of the Champion of Champships. However, round by round results will be available on the Bowls New Zealand website as well as story write ups for each event.

Interesting, Bowls NZ still has champion of champions but silly Auckland Bowls has dropped the title. Calling it club champion comp or something like that 😤 Good luck to the bowlers playing. Hope to see some live streaming.

Pretty slack having no livestream, remind me again where our affiliation fees go?

Can only find mens singles charts and results highlighted on yr link. Where can I find womens charts and results? Please advise. Thanks.

The women are not starting their first game till 2.30 this afternoon

Playing program

All the best too everyone taking part.

Damn.......been looking forward to it after watching all BA's events being live streamed & also NZ's streaming last week here in Australia. I would have thought a C of C event rated live streaming. I have a niece playing from Wairoa (Hawkes Bay)and was hoping to see her play while at home here in Oz......Good luck Glenda Kapene.

I'm greatful for the updates that we do get. It wasn't so long ago that we had no live streaming at all. It amazes me how often we as bowlers seem to hone in on the very few negatives instead of applauding the positives. Good luck to everyone participating in this awesome new Bowls NZ initiative, I'm sure that if it proves successful, we'll get live streaming in seasons to come.

Please give the link for women’s singles

Bowls NZ - did you know the link to the Women’s results on the Ch Ch hub is not live/working?....

where are the womens results

Go Jo, Sheldon and Wynette - best of luck for 2nd day. Do the south proud!!!

Is it live viewing

Auckland Bowls called it Club Champs of Champs as that is what it is the Club Champion going forth in pathways to be the N.Z. Club Champion of Champion. Previously there was the pathway for the Centre Champ of Champs hence the difference.

Update of results please.

Can Richard Kerr keep us up to date with results

Go girl

Aiden Takarua all day mate all the best good luck.
