SOME of the state's best female bowlers have been strutting their stuff on the greens of the South Tamworth Bowling Club this week.
More than 300 bowlers from across the state have been battling it out in the NSW Women's Bowls Championships.
Having started on September 2, the nine-day competition has seen bowlers vie for state glory in fours and triples.
South Tamworth Bowling Club chief executive officer Owen Walker said the event had attracted "the very best bowlers NSW has to offer".
"All of the different categories are played as a single-elimination style tournament and we have seen some unbelievable play so far," Walker said.
"Some of the bowlers here have represented their state and country in various events, so we certainly have seen the best of the best here so far, with plenty more to come."
This weekend will see the state singles title up for grabs before the event wraps up on Tuesday with the doubles and mixed pairs tournaments.
"Play begins at 9am every day, and Sunday will see the finals of the singles competition," Walker said.
"From there, it will roll into the singles finals before we get into the doubles on Monday and Tuesday.
"All of the matches have been played in good spirit so far and it has been very entertaining to watch."
Walker said the event was the latest in a string of high-profile events for the club.
"We recently hosted the state number three pennant titles and we have the state champion of champions tournament coming up in October," he said.
"It is nice to be able to play host to these kinds of events is just fantastic for a regional club like ours.
"You have to apply to host these events and we have been very lucky that all of our tenders have been successful."
