Tasmania's multiple world and Commonwealth champion Rebecca Van Asch is targeting a slice of history as she embarks on a busy national and international schedule.
The Invermay 31-year-old will be looking to become just the third person (along with Karen Murphy and Steve Glasson) to record three straight titles at the Australian Indoor Championships later this month.
As reigning champions, Van Asch and Aaron Teys earned automatic qualification for this year's event and will be the top seeds at Tweed Heads Bowls Club from August 26-29, for the 32nd staging of the nation's premier indoor singles competition.

"I've always enjoyed the indoors," Van Asch said.
"It has been a bit of a happy hunting ground for the last couple of years and I know that I'll definitely be going in as the hunted, going in with the last two wins. So we'll see what happens.
"There's only 32 that qualify through so each of those players are usually quite strong. So it's not an easy event but it's certainly one that I look forward to each year and it'll be nice to try and vie for that three-peat, but there's certainly a long road to go between now and then."
Van Asch will then lead Australia into the inaugural World Bowls Challenge having been named captain of the 10-strong Jackaroos team.
Australia will host Team World in the new marquee international event at Moama Bowling Club in Victoria from November 29-30, set to be broadcast live on Fox Sports Australia and Kayo Sports.
