St Heliers Bowling Club Vege Tournament

Club News


A lovely day on Saturday 27th of July was the date of the “famous” Barclays Vege Tournament. 14 teams, consisting of 36 x 1-5 players,  3 x   6 – 10 players and 3 helpers, battled it out for the wide variety of prizes. Everyone had a great time and it was impossible not to win a prize with wrong biases, worst Heads, best dressed, and touches, all earning great acclaim.

The participants greatly appreciated the work put in by Catherine, Barclay, Esther and Helen not only for the great event but for all the coaching over the last few weeks.

Thanks also to the sponsors, Ling Qu, Graeme Bennett, Sue Curran and Fenchurch Street Liquor providing an abundance of prizes.

There was some serious competition and

the top teams won gold, silver and bronze medals as well as a host of other goodies.
