Namibia’s men and women’s bowls teams will participate in the Atlantic Rim Bowls competition in Johannesburg, South Africa from May 3 to 16. Namibia’s women’s team has participated in the bi-annual tournament before but this is the first time that the men’s team will also compete. The competition is contested by countries on the Atlantic Rim and includes some of the world’s top bowling nations like England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Spain, the United States, Canada, Brazil and the hosts, South Africa. Cyprus and Israel will also compete on invitation.
Civics’ title aspirations suffered a setback when they were held to a goalless draw by Oshikandela Ramblers on Wednesday night. Playing in front of barely 30 fans at Windhoek’s Independence Stadium, Civics had the better of the first half, but Ramblers came back strongly in the second half.
Civics went onto the attack from the start and launched sustained attacks through Sedekia Haukambe, Victor Helu and Eslin Kamuhanga from the wings, while Bradley Wermann and their new Brazilian signing Alessandro Ferreira launched attacks from the centre of the park.
