Canada looks for repeat victory at NAC
Vancouver, B.C. |

Canada has a wide range of experience on this year’s North American Challenge (NAC) team as it looks to veteran bowlers for leadership in a repeat victory against the United States of America (U.S.A).

The experience varies from youth bowlers to world class international medalists. “I am excited about the opportunity to lead a group of young and talented women into this tournament against our friends from the United States,” said Winnipeg’s Shirley Fitzpatrick-Wong, 2002 Commonwealth Games silver medalist.

The 2016 NAC will take place at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club (PIBC), located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Each country fields two teams in the biannual challenge match: a Jarvis team and a Folkins team. Each team consists of five male and five female athletes.

This is the first NAC played at an indoor location. Both nations wanted a faster paced playing surface to match the quicker outdoor greens of the Southern Hemisphere as the World Championships are set to be played in Christchurch, New Zealand Nov.29 to Dec. 11, 2016.
