Some 80 avid and professional bowlers are set to take over the pristine greens in Jeffreys Bay this July. Winning honours, loads of fun, and most important of all, raising funds for a local non-profit organisation, are at stake.

The 33rd Nomad Women’s National Tournament will take place at the Jeffreys Bay Bowling Club from July 7 to 12.

The annual tournament will see between 75 and 80 bowlers from a total of ten districts - Ibhayi (Port Elizabeth), Border (East London), East Rand, Eden (Garden Route), Golden West (West Rand), Jacaranda (Pretoria), Johannesburg, Mpumalanga (Middelburg) V&V (Vaal Triangle), Western Province (Cape Town) and Kouga (Jeffreys Bay) put their bowling skills to the test.

“The tournament is held in a different district each year,” says Kouga Nomad Bowls Secretary Valerie Jackson. “This year, Kouga Nomad Bowls have the privilege of hosting this tournament.

“This is an opportunity for the ladies to meet up and enjoy a week of bowls, while having fun and raise money for local charities - sponsorship, donations, entry fees, fines and raffles. Our main beneficiary is St. Francis Hospice.”

According to Jackson, sponsorship from businesses and individuals will play a large part in the successful outcome of the tournament.

“Sponsorship or donations may be in cash or kind and will be most gratefully received by the organising committee,” says Jackson. “In return for the sponsorship, businesses are welcome to advertise at the bowling club for the duration of the tournament.”

The Kouga Nomad Bowls were the proud hosts of the Nomad Men’s National Tournament in 2013 - when the bar ran dry on the first night.

“That, after they had been warned to be well stocked,” says club member Malcom Weise laughingly.

“This year, we will not make the same mistake.”

Entries for the tournament close on April 30.

Registration takes place at the Jeffreys Bay Bowling Club from 12:00 to 17:00 on July 7, and from 09:00 to 12:00 on July 8. The opening ceremony will commence at 12:30 on July 8, while the first game of the tournament will be played at 14:00.
