CBC Bowlers Representing South Africa at the Commonwealth Games 2022

CBC is very proud of Annatjie van Rooyen (left) and Esme Kruger (right) who will be representing Team South Africa at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games starting on the 28th July 2022. 

Both ladies have represented their country before at the Games with Annatjie bagging a gold medal at the Para-Sport Mixed Pairs B2/B3 division in Glasgow 2014 and Esme winning a silver medal in the Ladies Fours category at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia. 

This year, Annatjie will be going as a Director for the Visually Impaired Athlete, Herman Scholtz, whilst Esme is competing in the Women’s Category.

Everyone here at CBC is extremely excited for our athletes and will be keeping a close eye on the results as we are sure another medal is on the horizon!
