The tournament involved residents of McEwan House, Glenco, Tui House, Manu- rewa Lifecare, Gulf Views and Hutton Park rest homes. Residents of all six homes gathered at Manurewa's McEwan House for the cele- bration which included performances from church and school groups and even a midday firework display. McEwan House manager Janet McKelvey says the event celebrated both the end of the tournament and her resthome's links to the local community. The celebration this year was the biggest version that we have run as it can be dif- ficult getting everyone together in one place,'' she says. We had a great day and all the residents really enjoyed catching up with their friends from other homes. It was a fantastic way to celebrate.'' During the tournament, now in its second year, hour- long fortnightly matches ran from February up until November with residents playing around 20 games each. Scores are tallied up over the year. They play a modified ver- sion of the game and instead of using wooden bowls they use water bowls because they are easier to handle. This year's overall winner was McEwan House while Glenco Resthome took the trophy for best attendance. Some of the residents were really good at bowls but for others it was all about trying and having fun. And aside from the health benefits, the tournament's also provided a social outlet for residents who've all made a lot of friends through it.'' Ms McKelvey says the event also recognised the con- nection McEwan House had to the local community and particularly Manurewa South, Clendon and Leabank primary schools. Students have visited residents throughout the year and have taken on various activities, she says. Manurewa South School in particular has been really supportive. We've worked with them for three years and they're always willing to come down.''
