$6,500 The Good Home Birkenhead Women's Pairs Tournament

Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 February 2024

In June 2009 under the Presidency of Rod Mahon the men of Birkenhead voted to allow women full membership of the club. Emmie Swart and Leanne Chinery set out to put Birkenhead on the map of women's bowls and announce that the women had arrived at Birkenhead. Thus the Women's Open Pairs Tournament with its big money and high class was born. The initial tournament, organised in a short period of time, with prize money of $4,300, was an overwhelming success. In 2013 and in its fourth year with "Slipp Inn" sponsoring for the third consecutive year and prize money was $6,500. 2014 the tournament reached its fifth year and to celebrate the prize money was raised to $7,000.
2024 we are again grateful for the continued support from "The Good Home Birkenhead".
This tournament is firmly entrenched in the Birkenhead playing programme.

The 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023 tournaments were endorsed by Bowls New Zealand as part of the Summer of Bowls.
