The Deniliquin Bowling Club’s annual Classic Pairs tournament was won by Brighton duo Neville Rodda and Jesse Thomas on Sunday.

Ninety teams contest the event, which was held over two days.

After five rounds of sectional play, the 15 section winners advanced to the play-offs.

The final was played between the Brighton pair and Ian Johnson and Neil Welsh from Apollo Bay.

After three ends, Rodda and Thomas were losing 6-1, but fought back to level the score with one end to play.

The Brighton pair were able to capture two shots to take out the prestigious event.

The local pairing of Shane Laing and Paul Snare played scintillating bowls over the weekend to reach the semi-finals.

The popular tournament also included a knock-out singles competition, which was contested by 80 bowlers in adverse conditions on Friday.

David Keenan from Bendigo East defeated Ocean Grove’s Joan Tennant by one shot in an exciting final.

Deniliquin Bowling Club would like to thank all the sponsors and also the volunteers who helped run the highly successful tournament.
