Defending Champions Return for Chance at Title

Thursday, January 18, 2018

This Friday the Hammer Queensland Seniors Classic will mark the first nationally ranked senior’s tournament of 2018. The tournament, entering its 14th year, has once again attracted the best senior bowlers from across the country.

The 3 day tournament, hosted at Caboolture Bowl & Mini Golf, will welcome back 2017 winners Craig Pearsall and Tracey Crisp.  Following seven tense matches in the final rounds last year, Pearsall took victory over Shaun Cummings by only 3 pins.  With a second placing at the tournament, Cummings went onto finish at the top of the senior rankings in 2017 and a win on Sunday afternoon will give the New South Welshman a flying start to the year.

In the women’s division Tracey Crisp who averaged over 200 in the tournament will go head to head with 2017 rankings winner Julie Harrison.  Harrison who won the Seniors Australian Open and Campbelltown Seniors Classic last year will be gunning for her fourth consecutive rankings win in the seniors division and victory this weekend will take the Queenslander one step closer to another rankings victory.

Having attracted over 100 bowlers, the tournament will see bowler’s complete 18 games across the weekend to decide the winner and who will take home over $13,000 in prizemoney.
