Week 3 of the Tony Tamplin Finals see the Tennis Club Titans and the Toronto Worker’s No. 2 bow out after both having good seasons. Unfortunately the Draw has given the only 2 teams left in the final from the one club both with homes games. Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.1 has graciously agreed to forego their home game advantage and play at Wangi so the finals can progress without delay. Good luck to all teams next week.

Due to some disagreements over the last couple of seasons the NDBSA Committee has determined that the order of play for the finals will be draw out of the hat and each match goes on as soon as any table becomes available just as in the group stages. As always home teams get the right to choose which tables the first 2 home side players play on. Home teams mark matches except when it’s a 3 table venue and in that instance the away player/s not playing should assist with marking. All five players from each team need to be in attendance at start times unless approval obtained from both captains. Player cigarette breaks are not to be taken mid-match.
Congratulations to Mayfield Bowling Club No.2 who have taken out the 2017 Tony Tamplin Minor Premiership after defeating Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 in a play-off. That now finalises the top 8 positions and the finals campaign will begin for all 8 teams on Wednesday the 19th October.

The venue has yet to be finalised but will be posted in the next couple of days. Following that the Finals will commence on the 18th of October.
Wangi Worker’s Club No.2 has taken out the Tony Tamplin Shield after defeating the favourites, the Cessnock Ex-Services Club No.1. Although the score line was 3-1 the matches were close and Cessnock could have easily won 3-1 had the balls run a little kinder. However the Wangi team held their nerve in some tight matches to claim the premiership – well done to Wangi. A special thanks the the Belmont 16′ Sailing Club for hosting the final. Another Wangi player, Kiah Bloomfield took out the seasons highest break with a clinical ’83’.
Wangi Worker’s defeated the Kahibah Kings and Cessnock Ex-Services Club No.1 defeated the Tennis Club Titans to both progress to this years Tony Tamplin Grand Final. The Grand Final will be held at the Belmont 16′ Sailing Club 7pm on the 28th September. Spectators encouraged to attend.
