The decrease in women’s participation is a worrying sign for Fiji Bowling.

Suva Bowling Club president Samuela Tui made the comment yesterday after the Litia Tikoisuva captained-Tamavua team took out the women’s category of the Shop N Save Supermarket Hutson Cup competition at the Suva Bowling Club yesterday.

He has urged more young girls to join the sport of bowling.

“It’s good to see the Tamavua ladies winning the women’s title for this year’s competition,” he said.

“The sad news is that the number of women participating have decreased. I urge all the young girls out there to come and at least try out or even learn what bowling is all about.

“We need to change our mentality and stop thinking that bowling is only played by old people. Fiji Bowling needs young people to come in help lift bowling and keep it alive.”

Tikoisuva said the three-day tournament was tough.

“We had eight teams represented here with one team coming all the way from Labasa.

“Several former and current national reps are participating and the competition was high, “she said. The men’s competition was won by the Suva team.
