New Zealand Blind Lawn Bowls Association has announced the New Zealand side that will travel to Cape Town in South Africa in March 2017 to take on the world’s best blind and low vision lawn bowlers at the World Championships.
The squad named includes –
B1 David Monk/Director Kath Monk
B2 Glenn Hanneman/Director Bernard Yeo
B3 Sue Curran/Director Ann Muir
B3 David Stallard/Director Peter Blick
B4 James Dunn/Director TBC
The squad announced is vastly experienced, with a number of World Champions in the team. Stallard recently won Bowls NZ’s Para-sport Player of the Year award at the 2016 Bowls NZ Awards, taking the trophy ahead of fellow team members Monk and Dunn.
The event in Cape Town makes for a busy start to 2017 for Dunn, who will captain the NZ BLINDCAPS at the blind cricket T20 World Cup in India before heading to South Africa.
