Deniliquin Bowling Club’s annual Classic Pairs tournament was once again a massive success last weekend.
Despite the wet weather the weekend saw 192 bowlers take to the greens of Deniliquin Bowling Club, Deni RSL Bowling Club and Mathoura Bowling Club on the Saturday in a round robin format with 16 different sections.
The finals were played on Sunday at the Deni Bowling Club with the final 16 playing knockout-style six end games.
The team of Michael Yelen and Rodger Smith defeated last year’s winners Brad Orr and Josh Thornton in the final by two shots. On the Friday it was Dylan Fisher winning the single knockout tournament.
The weekend was ‘‘extremely successful’’ according to club president Ray Anderson.
‘‘The weather wasn’t too kind but everyone still had a good time,’’ he said.
‘‘I’d like to congratulate our greenkeeper Conway Bovell for keeping our greens up to scratch despite the weather.
‘‘I’d also like to thank the Deni RSL and Mathoura bowling clubs for the use of their greens as well.’’
