Original story: THE 59th annual Summerland Singles is off and rolling at the Cherry Street Sports Club, Ballina.

Thirty two bowlers are currently out on the greens including Ballina product and current Australian rep Aaron Teys.

Cherry Street Sports club general manager Tere Sheehan welcomed the bowlers.

"We've pulled the field back so it's more of an elite tournament and the next few days are huge for us," Sheehan said.

"We get a full house and trying to find seats for everyone is a good problem to have."

Alstonville bowler Peter Taylor continued his recent run of form with a convincing 21-9 win over Les Rootsey in his first game.

Chris Herdern was also a big winner in a 21-4 win over Warren Nugent while Ballina bowler Luke Jones had a 21-18 win over Justin Weir.
