President’s Message

 Thank you to the Clubs of Bowls North Harbour for your confidence in me to represent Clubs and players as your President for the 2022/2023 Season.  I have the pleasure of working with a very talented group of people who make up the Board of Bowls North Harbour and we will endeavour as a team to support all Clubs and Players in our Centre.

We appreciate that we have a very busy year ahead as we have the honour of hosting Bowls New Zealand National Intercentre in October, followed in November by Bowls New Zealand National Interclub 7’s.    We join with Auckland in January in hosting Bowls New Zealand National Singles and Pairs which will involve Clubs, players, Umpires, officials and give our Greenkeepers a very busy time at the start of the New Year.

As always one of our aims is to have successful Representative teams playing for Bowls North Harbour and we thank the Managers, Selectors and Coaches who give so generously of their time to promote our Centre.   We have a wealth of talent and we wish all of them every success for the coming Season.

Without the support of our Clubs and their staff we would not be able to fulfil our playing programme and we thank every one of you whether you work in the kitchen, administration, greens or help with marking as you all play an essential role in Bowls North Harbour Centre.   The hospitality shown to our Event Managers, Umpires and members of the Board has been outstanding.

We are indebted to our Sponsors and thank them most sincerely for their continued support.

Players are the heart of our Centre and our role remains as always – to promote enjoyment, participation, development and recruitment of new members.

On behalf of the Board, at all levels of the game, good luck, good bowling and have an uninterrupted season for the first time in a couple of years.

Maureen Taylor
