The National Under 25 Bowls Silver Squad attended a practice and training camp with the South African World Bowls Men and Women Teams during the past weekend, at the High Performance Centre of the University of Pretoria.
 
The main objective of the camp was to put the World Bowls team through a tough training program, as part of their preparation for the World Bowls Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand, early in 2008.
 
The Silver Squad that attended the training camp included 6 up-and-coming women bowlers, who are potential Protea bowlers of the future.
 
The bowlers attended some of the Protea players’ practice and training camps, to give them exposure to competitive bowls at the highest possible level.

These camps take place under the auspices and watchful eye of  the newly-appointed Head Coach Kallie Haupt, and a team of highly-qualified sport scientists at the High Performance Centre.
 
On Saturday the Silver Squad’s U/25’s played against a star-studded Gauteng North at Wingate Park, and on Sunday they played against an equally-formidable team from Central Gauteng.
 
In both instances the youngsters submitted to their more experienced opponents, but seen from a training and practice point of view, these matches were regarded as being of great value for the younger players.
