Inaugural Brunswick Ladies Triple Crown Pretty In Pink

Thursday, August 10, 2017

The Brunswick Ladies Triple Crown kicks off this weekend with Campbelltown City Bowl playing host to the tournament making its debut on the national ranked circuit.

Whilst the tournament will showcase the best female bowlers in the country in the open division, it will also provide an opportunity to raise funds for cancer research and support with a number of pink events and fundraisers being held over the three days.    

Following months of preparation tournament promoter, Daniel Webb said this weekend’s cause is close to his heart and that of the bowling community.

“We are wanting this weekend to be a celebration of ladies bowling in Australia.”

“With a number of ladies in the bowling community having suffered from cancer and having known people in my own family and ladies at Campbelltown City Bowl who have suffered from the illness, we thought it’s something that can directly help people in our community,” Webb said.

With the tournament taking on a unique format where winners will be crowned in the youth, open, senior divisions, Webb is hoping that this weekend will not only raise funds to fight cancer but also develop female bowling in Australia.

“We came up with a format that combines senior, youth and open bowlers that creates a tournament with some good prize money available to all bowlers.”

“With lower numbers of female bowlers competing in ranked events compared to a number of years ago, we think the format will encourage more ladies to enter tournaments like this,” Webb added.

To help grow participation and interest in the event, Campbelltown City Bowl will also host a baker doubles event on Friday night and a charity bowl-a-thon on Saturday evening and Webb said anyone can get involved across the weekend.

“There are plenty of spots available in each event including the Triple Crown and Baker Doubles and the charity banquet dinner on Saturday night still has a few tickets available.”  

“If you don’t want to bowl why not come and have a look over the weekend and support those bowling and even buy a shirt to help support the cause.”

Spectators will also be in for a treat with the number one ranked female bowler in the country, Bec Whiting competing over the two days of competition.  Following two victories on the ladies circuit in 2017, Whiting has also beaten the best male bowlers in the country at the SA Cup in July.  With only the NSW Open and Australian Masters to be bowled after the weekend’s competition, Whiting could extend her lead in the rankings if successful on Sunday.
