The first ranked event in the open division, the Kegel QLD Open, gets underway this weekend at Caboolture Bowl & Mini Golf.

The first of five open division ranked events in 2022 will welcome 108 registered bowlers to Caboolture where four squads are fully booked out for the always-popular event.

National Training Squad Open member Jarrod Langford will once again return to his “home away from home” to defend his title. Dubbed the ‘King in the North’, Langford will look to extend his record in the event aiming for his fourth successive title and fifth overall.

In the 12 years the tournament has run, seven different champions have been crowned with five of them set to bowl this weekend.

There will be no shortage of challengers to the Kegel throne with approximately 20 current National Training Squad members from various age groups competing and several past NTS members looking to break the Langford stronghold on the title.

The event will kick off on Friday night with A Squad to commence stage 1 of the tournament.

We wish all bowlers the best of luck and high scoring on the weekend!
