Past Champions to Make an Appearance at 20th Qld Ladies Classic

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The 20th running of the Queensland Ladies Classic will take place this weekend when Caboolture Bowl hosts the third ranked event on this year’s women’s national circuit.

The well supported tournament begins on Saturday at 12 noon with two squads of bowlers completing 8 games on day 1 and a further 6 on Sunday morning to determine the top 15 bowlers who will progress to the 7 game match play series.

Following a huge victory in 2017 by 418 pins, leading women’s bowler Bec Whiting will be shooting for a record fifth QLD Ladies Classic title. Having won the title in 2010, 2011, 2014 and last year, the Australian representative will be in contention on Sunday afternoon.

After a 2nd placing at the Fishing World Ladies Classic and finishing the best of the scratch bowlers at the VIC150, Whiting competed at the Melbourne Tenpin Cup and SA Cup’s against the best male bowlers in the country to miss out on a podium finish, but this weekend could be a different story.

Sitting in second on the rankings and without a win on the ranked circuit in 2018 is Narelle Baker.  Having finished 3rd at February’s Fishing World Ladies Classic, Baker will be looking for victory with only three women’s ranked events left in the year after this weekend.  
The 20th year will also see a number of previous winners welcomed back to join in the celebrations. 2012 and 2015 winners Alicia Melton and Emma Walsh will be competing alongside 2016 champion Bec Martin. The weekend will also see a past retired champion return to the sport with the unveiling of their identity to be known on Saturday.

To catch all the action this weekend head to Caboolture Bowl, 207 Morayfield Road, Morayfield or keep an eye on
