Juniors roll up for Lawn Bowls State titles

WHEN juniors play lawn bowls some of the conservative style of play gets put aside and a more aggressive approach is taken.

And this exciting version of bowls is on show for eight days when Bundaberg hosts the 2015 Junior State Championships.

Without years of experience putting too much bias on the players' style the juniors play a free-spirited entertaining game.

The state titles showcase the extraordinary young talent being developed across the state. Juniors compete in singles, pairs, triples and fours in the Under-18 category, while there are also boys' and girls' singles and combined pairs events for U15s.

This competition was open to all Bowls Queensland affiliated junior bowlers and entries flooded in from across the state.

Bowlers from Broadbeach in the south to Marlin Coast, Cairns, will be on the greens at the Burnett and Across The Waves Bowls Clubs from tomorrow to April 15 with play starting at 9am each day.

Bundaberg Junior Bowls Development Officer Des Kemp encourages lawn bowls fans to get along to watch Queensland's next generation of lawn bowlers in action and with plenty of young Bundaberg talent in the draw there will someone to cheer on.
