THE bowling green is no longer the domain of retirees, more young people are taking up the sport and Burnett Bowls Club is embracing the change by hosting its annual junior-senior pairs day.

Youth met age head on at the weekend and there was some great games played. Des Kemp, Bundaberg junior bowls coordinator, said the day gave the young players more than the opportunity to learn he finer points of the sport.

"The kids got a lot of experience from playing against and with the seniors," Kemp said.

"They also got to meet kids from other towns and form some new friendships."
