Defending champion Makaia Campbell is one of the favourites to win the Bowls Wairarapa women’s open singles held at Lansdowne Bowling Club this weekend.

Campbell heads a small field of 13 that is devoid of several representative players, most notably Tanya Wheeler, Fiona Mancer, and Janelle Frew, who were in the Wairarapa team who performed so well in finishing second at the Tararua quadrangular tournament in Palmerston North.

Campbell, from the Featherston club, plays Elaine Hemi [Lansdowne], Dale Rowe [Featherston] and Alarna Sweeney [Masterton] in qualifying.

One of the most interesting opening round clashes features two of the other favoured bowlers, Jean Paku from Lansdowne, and Judith Wyeth, from Masterton.

Paku has been in good form, while Wyeth’s pedigree speaks for itself, being the winner of 30 centre titles.

Paku also plays the only bowler from outside the region, Margaret Connolly from the Eastbourne club. and Leah Mackenzie [Masterton].

Wyeth comes up against Alanna Saunders [Masterton] and Rowe, another in-form player having made the final of the Open mixed 2-4-2 on Wednesday.

Players need to win two out of three qualifying games to make post-section play on Sunday.

Play gets under way tomorrow morning on the carpet weave green at the Lansdowne-Masterton Park Club in Queen Elizabeth Park.
