Congratulations to Tuxedo’s Jerome Kirby, he is the 2017 Canadian Open Singles Champion! Congratulations also to BC bowler Mary Wright who won women’s gold medal.
As many of you know Winnipeg is hosting the 2017 Canadian Open Singles Championships at Norwood and 1212 Dakota this week. In total there are more than 40 men and women vying for the title of Canadian Champion. Singles play, like 4’s, is rarely played at the clubs. Many members never experience singles, or even see it. Well now you have the chance. Sports Canada TV is live streaming many of the matches and you can view live streamed games at this link.
