For those who are unfamiliar with the PBA, we have been operating in New Zealand since 2000. We are a branch of the International PBA which is situated in the UK. There are other branches worldwide including Australia, Hong Kong, USA, Canada, Israel and South Africa. Our events take place over the winter and are played in indoor venues located in Auckland, Hamilton, Hastings, Dunedin and Invercargill.

Our main events are three singles competitions in which the winner of each venue goes to a national final. The winners of the National final for each of the three singles events are eligible to compete on the World Bowls Tour in the UK. We also run a ‘Shanghai’ event in which members and non-members may compete for a place in the national final, the winner has a trip to Australia as a prize. We will be running an extra Shanghai on Friday the 12th at Bowls Heretaunga,, the winner will get to compete in the national final – if anyone is coming to watch and would like to play in this event (they do not have to be a member of PBA) can they please contact myself by the 1st September. There are limited places for this Friday night event. At the end of the finals we will also have a pairs tournament open to members and non-members, so again if people are coming to watch and would like to play can they contact myself by the 1st Sept.

The members of the PBA are male and female who compete against each other - e.g. women get to play singles against male or female players.  Our line up for finalists includes two female players and also two youth players.
