Willow wins big for Queensland
Bundaberg’s Geoff Williams has returned from Tasmania with a national title as part of the victorious Queensland Over-60s team.
The Tantitha Bowls Club legend was part of the state team that emerged victorious in the Australia Seniors Titles in Hobart last week.
“It was a great feeling to go down there and get a win,” Williams said.
The champ will be reunited with Queensland team-mate John Walker at the Tantitha Bowls Club Invitation Peers tournament this weekend.
Williams will be one of more than 16 current or former Queensland and Australian representatives in the field at the invitational event.
He said it was the best field available since the tournament returned to Tantitha six years ago.
“There is a lot of class players coming to this event,” Williams said.
“To have so many current and ex-state representatives at one tournament is a real honour.”
Teams of two from centres across Queensland will play over two days at Tantitha.
The winning team will walk away with $5400 in prizemoney.
The tournament will run over both days of the weekend with players progressing to a final.
“There will be a lot of teams queuing up for that prizemoney — it will definitely be up in the air,” Williams said.
