5 YEAR & UNDER REPRESENTATIVES
The Kapiti Representative teams played against Hutt Valley on Sunday 1st May at Otaki Bowling Club in their annual fixture.
This year Kapiti had a resounding victory with all teams winning three out of four games.
It's especially pleasing, as the Clive Baker Trophy has been pretty hard to take off Hutt Valley - but this year we did it.
The Centre congratulates all players selected and the support staff.
