EVENT: Lawn Bowls: Para B6-B8 Women's Pair

Bennett will be competing in the B6-B8 para women's pairs with Pam Walker at the upcoming games.

After stepping onto the green for the first time in 2009 for a social bowls league in Arapuni, Bennett developed a passion for the game, beginning her competitive career two years later in Te Awamutu.

She went to on to take out numerous tiles including winning the world singles title in South Africa in 2012, silver in the para triples in Glasgow in 2014, and more recently winning gold in the Australia Open singles in 2017.

Bennett has worked hard in preparation for Birmingham with coach Mike Kernaghan, and is pushed hard by her gym trainer daily.

Off the green she enjoys spending time out in her garden, and upcycling furniture.
