Maritzburg Bowling Club win All Natal Fours title

2014-07-31 00:00

BOWLS in the KZN capital tasted sweet success recently when outsiders Maritzburg Bowling Club won the All Natal Fours title against more fancied opponents.

The club’s supporters turned out in their numbers at Maritzburg West Bowling Club for the final, which was an all-PMB affair, as Lynwood Bowling Club were the other finalists. This is certainly a feather in the cap for the sport in the PMB area and an indication of the vibrancy of the sport in the capital, as well its bowling clubs.

There wasn’t even standing room available as the capacity crowd cheered on the bowlers during an absorbing final, but it was Keith Harcombe, Paul Muirhead, Brad Burne and Willie Williams from Maritzburg Bowling Club who took the honours. Teams from all over KwaZulu-Natal, including teams with national players, took part in this event. Stella Park from Durban, with two national players lost to MBC in the semi-finals.

Harcombe won the All Natal Pairs title last year with Kevin Williams, a brother of Willie. Their brother, Larry, has also won an All Natal title in the past, so it was a big day for the Williams family. The father of the Williams brothers was also a bowler of distinction in his heyday, who won a number of titles.

Stella Park went on to beat Umhlali for third place in the men’s play-offs.

The All Natal Women’s Fours was won by Durban Bowling Club, who beat Westville Country Club in their final.
