The annual Keysborough Skins Tournament has become a bowlers favourite! For the 2017 event Keysborough Bowls Club had 28 teams, a beautiful day, and a lot of enthusiasm.
Congratulations to C. Clegg from Hampton Bowls Club, who skipped their team to 10 out of 15 wins! Their win didn't go uncontested with a Keysborough Team, led by John Casey, also getting 10 out of 15 wins. The final decision was made based on shots up. Hampton won the big money, with our Keysborough team taking away the second prize.
For those that have not participated in a bowls skin competition, the format is simple - teams of three players play 15 games of 2 ends each, it is fast and furious! Each win gains them a 'Skin'; every skin is a guaranteed payment of $4.50 - draw or loss pays nothing.The highest number of skins determines the winner and runner up. Shots up are used to seperate equal numbers of skins.
If you would like to enter the 2018 competition, please email Keysboroughbowls@outlook.com to request an entry form. Entries are limited to a maximum of 32 teams.
