Graham Growcott, a past NZ Open Singles winner in 2012, was up against Chad Grant from Grandviews, Sydney in the Singles final for 2018. After some close scoring by both competitors in the early stages it was 7 all after eight ends. Graham found a good line to work up to a 13-7 lead, but after fifteen ends Chad had fought back to 13 all with many fine shots pushing Graham’s shots aside. Chad’s momentum took him on to an 18-16 lead when an excellent three gained him the required 21 points to win the game. There were superb bowls played by both players enjoyed by the many Blockhouse Bay supporters.
