Bowls NSW is excited to announce through its partnership with Power Productions a highlights programme of the State Singles Championship final played at Ettalong Memorial Club will be shown on Fox Sports.
The hour-long show will be featured on 15th October at 4:30pm and again replayed on 17th October at 9:00am, featuring the State Singles Championship final between Matthew Baus of Raymond Terrace and David Ferguson of Engadine.
With over 480 competitors playing across the week, and 16 competitors qualifying in the State Singles Championships, the final highlights the best of the individual performances from across the week.
The highlights show on Fox Sports further complements the live streaming that was completed across the full State Championships competition, which saw over 1.2 million minutes viewed on Facebook of the competition across Australia.
As Bowls NSW CEO Greg Helm quoted “The live streaming of our State Championships and the Fox highlights show is instrumental in assisting the Association in growing the awareness of the sport, whilst also allowing fans across the State to actively engage in watching the Championships. The high level of engagement by fans and audiences throughout the State Championships live streaming programs shows us there is an appetite for more bowling events to be broadcast to reach a wider audience, which is an instrumental part of our future strategic plan.
We are excited to be partnering with Power Productions and having our State Singles Championship final showcased on Fox Sports”.
“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” stated Power Productions Managing Director David Tapp.
The State Championships began on Friday 20th September and concluded on Sunday 29th September at Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club.
