1st March 2013 - Brunswick Team England finished the Mixed Team in 4th place after the second 3-game block ended.  In high spirits the team leapt right into 3rd place after an opening 778 game and continued to maintain 3rd/4th against Malaysia as the blocks continued but SIngapore produced a very smooth set of scores (883, 892, 873, 827, 870 and 928) to keep the first place with 5,273 (219.7 ave).  There's been a lot of praise amongst the team for each other on the public media such as Facebook, and with games of 234, 212, 231, 225, 235, 221, 236, 258, 205, 210, 205, 224, 212, 203 and 259 it's no surprise.  Each member of the Commonwealth Championships 2013 Brunswick Team England are through the Masters.

WellsPennyMixed28th February 2013 - John Wells and Kirsten Penny took the Mixed Doubles Bronze in a match that "...could have gone any one of four ways!", as Chris Oates described it.  Gold winners Australia averaged 217/214 to take the gold, indicating a tough set of conditions.  England's Chris Oates and Lisa John finished squad 1 in third place with Chris carding 1,131 (188.5 ave) and Lisa 1,231 (205.1 ave).  Chris fired games of 214, 212 and 211 in his block, and Lisa fared better with 220, 216, 216 and 225.  It was very tight with the team averge only 19 behind the leaders.

John Wells and Kirsten Penny had a decent afternoon with John opening on 263 and adding a 258 and 214 to make 1,294 (215.6 ave), and Kirsten adding 229, 225, 229 and 206 to make 1,226 (204.3 ave).  As with Chris and Lisa before them the squad was tight and the lead moved continuously, but it settled finally on Bronze for John and Lisa, the team average of 210 being a mere 5.5 pins off the Australians who took Gold and the Malaysians who took Silver.

Mens Doubles

27th February 2013 - England's John Wells and Christopher Oates (pictured left, with Coach Jon Zadel) took the Mens Doubles Silver after a tight match in which Gold, Silver and Bronze were separated by only 51 pins, at doubles pace.  Fantastic scoring by the men on this short oil, always favoured by them both before the tournament, coupled with John receiving his missing bowling balls and being able to register a full set of six, lead to pairings of 419, 442, 493, 429, 471 and 437 for 2,692 (224.25 ave).  With John, Lisa and Kirsten being 'old hands' at international bowling, Chris has found his feet very comfortably in Auckland and team spirits are immeasurably high right now.  SIngapore took Gold and Australia (with men's sinlges gold winner Sam Cooley) bronze.
