I am very confident that many of the world's best bowlers will enjoy competing in Auckland as there are many excellent Clubs with beautiful greens and facilities and they will make great hosts of this event.
I wish to express my thanks to the CEO Mark Cameron and the Board of Bowls New Zealand for agreeing to host this event.”
