WHAT a great week of bowls at Park Beach last week.

A fantastic lineup of Australian Champions and representatives along with many other great players turned up to compete in the inaugural Park Beach Phoenix Open Pairs.

Over the course of 5 days, at times in testing weather conditions, the players battled through sectional groups to determine the quarter-finalists.

The remaining teams then competed in the ‘Dash for Cash’.

Congratulations to the very first winners of the event – Nathan Wise & Ben Glasson who won by a single shot.
