SOME of the best bowlers from the Mornington Peninsula will battle it out in the Regional Triples Final on Wednesday 21 November at the Mount Eliza Bowling Club.

Having made their way through the semi-finals in convincing fashion, Mt Eliza will play off against Frankston in the Men’s division while Dromana and Karingal will face off in the Women’s division.

A packed crowd is anticipated to attend the final which will be played under-lights and is set to kick off at 6:00pm.

Mount Eliza Bowling Club chairman, Dale Verhagen, said he was very much looking forward to seeing how Mt Eliza go against Frankston.

“We didn’t have a team in this last year,” Verhagen said.

“It’s quite a strong competition on the Peninsula but I think we’re going into this year with a good chance. They had a comfortable semi-final win and hopefully they can do it again, but I’m confident they’ll go well in a fairly even competition.”

The Peninsula Bowling Division invited Mt Eliza to host the Regional Triple Finals this year and Verhagen said it was an offer that the club was “obviously quite happy to take up”.

“There’s usually a lot of food and drink for everyone and it always seems to be quite a good night,” he said.

The winners of the Regional Triples Finals will then head towards the State Triples Finals at the Brighton Bowling Club.
