Bowls NSW is excited to announce that it has partnered with Power Productions to live-stream the 2019 NSW State Championships from the 22nd to the 28th September 2019 at Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club. In addition to the Championships being live-streamed, Fox Sports will also be completing a one-hour highlights show, which further showcases the Championships and sport.
With over 480 competitors across the week, players will be competing for the Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours State Championship titles. Clubs and Zones from all over New South Wales are represented and we expect to see a large crowd gather at Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club to watch the Championships, in addition to the live streams.
Bowls NSW CEO Greg Helm recently announced this significant achievement for the sport: “The Association understands the value of live-streaming our Championships to assist in growing the awareness of the sport, whilst also ensuring all players and fans across the state are able to watch and enjoy the Championships. Bowls NSW is dedicated to growing the game, and having tournaments live-streamed and showcased on Fox Sports is an important part of our future strategic plan of making the game more accessible to all.
We are excited to be partnering with Power Productions and taking live-streaming to the next level with these industry experts”.
Power Productions Managing Director David Tapp, confirmed that live-streaming of the NSW Championship sets a new benchmark for the sport: “We are delighted to be partnering with Bowls NSW to provide viewers with a full television broadcast featuring some new innovations that will provide an incredible insight into the Championship battle.
“Fox Sports has been a big supporter of bowls, and its decision to screen a 60-minute highlights show based on the singles final will make for compelling viewing. This is a significant achievement thanks to NSW CEO Greg Helm’s perseverance in getting expanded broadcasting for major events.”
The State Championships begin on Friday 20th September and concludes Sunday 29th September at Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club. Power Productions live-streaming will be shown from the Sunday 22nd September until Friday 27th September. In addition, Bowls NSW will be live streaming the first two days and last days of competition through their own production through Facebook. Confirmation of the broadcast time for The Fox Sports Highlights, which is expected to be shown in the second week of October, will be announced shortly.
