Bridport duo bowling for Tasmania in national championships

Colleen Davis and Maxine Monson from the Bridport Bowls club were chosen to represent Tasmania in the Australian Senior Sides Bowls Championships.

Played over seven rounds, the over-60’s event began on Monday and runs until Wednesday.

This year’s Bowls Australia event is being held at Yorke Peninsula, just outside of Adelaide. 

The 2017 competition marks Monson’s third time representing Tasmania at the annual competition, while Davis will be competing in her maiden national bowls event.

The pair are joined by 10 other women from around the state to make up the women’s team.

Tasmania began its campaign on Monday with a 59-58 loss to South Australia.
