Bowls Club Eindhoven has another Dutch Champion
Frans Roberts from Bowls Club Eindhoven managed to qualify for the final round on Sunday through a preliminary round on Saturday. He had to play three matches and won them all, making him Dutch Champion for the second year in a row at the “Singles Outdoor” tournament in Haarlem on Sunday afternoon, which is a special achievement. On Sunday morning he played his quarter-final match against a player who had played in recent weeks. participated in the World Pairs Bowls Championships in Australia, so not the first, but Frans was much stronger. He then played in the semi-finals and then the final, against two strong players from the (home) club “Ons Kinnehim” , who play on these courses every week. Despite the fact that they know the characteristics of the courses well and the courses are longer than our courses, Frans managed to win both with good play and thus became Dutch Champion again. Frans is allowed next year, on behalf of the Netherlands, to participate in the “World Bowls Champion of Champions” tournament in Australia.
The ceremony took place on Tuesday afternoon, September 19, during the weekly training in the sports accommodation at “Aan De Meet” Amazonenlaan 4 in Eindhoven.
