LAWN bowls teams from Eventide, Brighton and Sandgate will compete against one another for the Bluewater Bowls Classic on Sunday, April 23.

Sixteen players from each of the bowls clubs will bowl it out for the 4th annual trophy held at Sandgate Bowls Club this year.

Sandgate Ladies' Bowls president Angela Baker said each club will have two men's and two women's teams competing.

"It's a great day, full of fun, very social but competitive between the clubs,” she said.

"We are all trying to win the perpetual trophy.

Brighton took home the trophy last year and their ladies' bowls president Marion Burford said she was looking forward to defending their title.

"It's only once a year for that but Brighton and Sandgate compete in other times of the year, especially with the ladies,” she said.

"We are all good friends.”

Four teams of four will compete in the morning and the trophy presentation will follow lunch.
