Nationals Wrap Up

by Billy Johnson

What a fortnight it has been for our New South Wales bowlers at the 2022 Nationals! Starting with the KENO NSW Para-Blues back in late September right through to the Australian Championships in mid-October, the New South Wales representatives finished with a staggering NINETEEN medals across all events.

Equally as impressive is that medals were won in five of the six major events at the Nationals – the Multi-Disability Championships, the Australian Champion of Champions, the Australian U18 Championships, the Australian Sides Championships and the Australian Championships.
