Crowned junior bowl champion

THE Sydney Bowlfest showcased top-tier bowling talent from across Australia and New Zealand for the second consecutive year earlier this month, culminating in the crowning of four champions at iPlay Tenpin City in Lidcombe.

Participants had the opportunity to compete in one or both of the nationally ranked events – the Junior Sydney Cup and the Sydney Youth Cup – by completing nine qualifying games.
A local favourite from iPlay Tenpin City in Lidcombe, Justin Dinham solidified his status as a premier talent in junior tenpin bowling with a commanding performance in the male division in the Junior Sydney Cup.
Enjoying an exceptional year, he topped the Open division rankings after a victorious run at the Kegel Queensland Open and achieved a commendable sixth place finish at the Australian Open.
Competing in his first junior division event of the year, Justin brought the same level of confidence and precision that has marked his previous performances.
In the title match, he decisively defeated his opponent, 228-201.
This victory was a fitting finishing touch to his stellar performance throughout the event, highlighting his readiness for his first international challenges as part of the Australian team in Malaysia and Korea in June.
“I can’t wait to make my mark on the world stage,” the 15-year-old said.
Other champions to be crowned were Jessica Chi (Wetherill Park), Emily Hinspeter (Townsville) and Blake Walsh (Ballina).
For those looking to be part of the upcoming excitement, entries are now open for the Queensland Junior Cup.
