FATHER and son, Ben O’Connor and Jovesa O’Connor came out victorious in the Suva Bowling Club Open Pairs competition which ended yesterday at the Suva Bowling Club in Nasese, Suva.

Jovesa O’Connor who experienced his first win was proud to be paired up with his father who is also his mentor and who introduced him to the sport.

The competition is a build up to the national competition which will be held next weekend at the Nadi Sports Club.

Suva Bowling Club games committee member Dan Lum-On said the competition was also a qualifier for the National competition.

“The competition next weekend is the master pairs and you can only qualify by winning the club pairs which the Suva Bowling Club has organized since last week,” said Lum-On.

There were a total of eight participants that were present at the Suva Bowling Club yesterday.
