One Hundred and Forty ten-pin bowlers converged on the Bundy Bowl and Leisure Centre earlier this month when the Bundaberg Ten Pin Bowling Association hosted the 2022 Association Challenge.

Men’s and Women’s teams from South East Queensland to Rockhampton played over four days, with Caboolture claiming the overall win ahead of Gold Coast and Ipswich.

Bundaberg finished fifth overall but had Wide Bay bragging rights finishing ahead of Maryborough and Hervey Bay.

A weekend highlight for Bundaberg was Donovan Brown bowling a perfect 300 game in the men’s competition.

“It was a great weekend with plenty of great bowling,” Bundaberg Association president Phil Burke said.

Bundaberg last hosted the event in 2014, and Burke believes the standard of bowling gives the local junior bowlers an indication of the level they need to reach.

“It was also a great way to showcase Bundaberg and the region,” Burke said.
