The senior and grand senior ranked event season continues this weekend with the John Sullivan Senior Australian open set to kick-off at Zone Bowling Frankston in Victoria.
This year will be the 17th year running of the event and will be the second stop in the senior and grand senior season for 2023.
Set to host three ranked events this year along with the Vic 150 and Australian Tenpin Bowling Open, Zone Bowling Frankston will once again welcome bowlers after hosting the event for the first time last year. It’s unique 28-lane split centre setup creates a fantastic atmosphere for bowlers and spectators alike.
2022 champions Andrew Lloyd, Jenny Burton-Douglas, and Graeme Morgan all return to defend their titles. Both senior division bowlers Andrew and Jenny ended the 2022 year on a high after being crowned the national ranking winners for the divisions.
After taking out the first event for the senior division for 2023 at the Hammer Queensland Senior Classic, Victorian Dena Buxton will be in attendance keen to continue her incredible form in the senior division.
The format is straightforward. All bowlers will bowl 16 games in two squads, eight games on Saturday and the final eight games on Sunday. There will be three divisions at play – Mens, ladies, and Men’s over 60’s. A ladies over 60’s bonus will be given to ladies who do not cash in the ladies division.
Tenpin Bowling Australia wishes all the bowlers the best of luck and high scoring this weekend!
