Tawa youngster Lachlan Gordon
will sharpen his skills on the
green to ensure he stands out in
the search for New Zealand's best
young lawn bowlers.
Bowls New Zealand will run
camps throughout the country in
October to scout for young talent
to compete in the annual Aust-
ralia and New Zealand test series
Gordon, 17, who plays for the
Johnsonville Bowling Club, said
he planned to work on his training
in the lead up to the Wellington
"I need to have a more struc-
tured approach to my training,
rather than just doing a bit of
practice before events.''
Twenty of the most promising
under-18 players will be selected
at the camps. From there, the
bowlers will compete at a national
camp in Auckland for a place in
the trans-Tasman clash.
Five girls and boys will be
chosen for the competition.
Gordon has played lead in the
Wellington development squad
and won the junior singles at
He qualified for the national
secondary schools singles final in
"I've had some good results and
I've beaten some good players, but
I really want to test myself
against other players of my age,"
National coach Dave Edwards
said he wanted to make sure none
of the international potential
slipped under the radar, so there
would be open entry to the camps.
"There is some outstanding tal-
ent on display at national second-
ary school level these days, but
the Australian's are very competi-
tive at this age group so we need
to ensure that we flush out all the
talent available to us."
At the camp, participants' tech-
niques will be analysed, they will
learn how to train in a more pro-
fessional manner, and they will be
teamed up with local coaches who
will help them develop as players.
"Apart from the trial aspects of
these camps it also provides a fan-
tastic opportunity for the young-
sters to have two full days coach-
ing and training," said Edwards.
Johnsonville Bowls Club presi-
dent Allan Galbraith said people
were welcome to train at the club.
The Wellington camp is October
