The Centre First Year Singles were held on Saturday 11 March. Due to very wet weather this event was transferred from the Homai Club to the Pukekohe indoor bowling facility.
Due to lack of entries, two games out of three were played. Gavin Slade from Pukekohe was the out-right winner, after two games were completed. Well done Gavin, a player to watch out for in the future. On the same day, starting at 1pm, the indoor facility was used to host Buckland verses Pukekohe Friendship Challenge. This was last played in 2013-14. A great afternoon of friendship and hilarity. This was won by Pukekohe, who hold the trophy until next year when a further challenge will be played.
 
The Club would like to wish the best of luck to their four ladies, Bev Craig, Pauline Hayward Wendy Sauri and Leeane Poulson, who travel to Dunedin to defend their Counties Centre Fours title against all other club winners from around NZ.
