PNBC’s 2022 Invitational Triples Challenge
The Club’s Invitational Triples Challenge with 16 teams concluded on Friday 11th February.
There were some changes to arrangements this year following a review of the 2021 event, including 8 colours for team shirts to differentiate teams and provide extra atmosphere and specially made scoreboards were introduced for spectators’ convenience.
Three Bowl Triples is fast paced action with points earned for touchers, closest bowl for the first two ends and points for the closest bowl (10), second (5) and third (3) at the conclusion of each end. Each game comprises 6 ends with teams responsible to progressively confirm score totals with the scorer.
Volunteer Scorers, Measurers and Umpires ensure games run smoothly and enables players to focus on their individual and team’s bowling. Spectators are entertained by high quality draw bowling and aggressive shot-making. With scores varying greatly over each of the six ends with regular exchanges of lead during matches. Every team plays two games on each of the five round robin nights and then the two top teams from the two divisions play semi-finals and a grand final to decide the winner.
Players and spectators enjoyed a BBQ meal, drinks and raffles every evening which began at 6:30pm and concluded around 9:30pm.
Sponsors for the event were Michael Morden’s, Fully Promoted, Morphett Vale and Addicted to Chocolate, a new sponsor for 2022.
