A Brilliant Day in The Sunshine

After a four-year break, and on a blisteringly hot day, the Hunter-Tredwell Open Triples tournament was held at Kingsthorpe Bowling Club. Originally played in 2015 – 2019 the competition was held in memory of two great bowlers from Kingsthorpe, Andrew Hunter and Ernie Tredwell, who played at County and National level for many years.

24 teams took part, split into two groups, with each team playing 3 games of 7 ends. At the end of the 3 games the winners from each group played off in the final and the runners-up in each group played for 3rd and 4th places.

After some great bowls in the final the eventual winners were Andrew Manton, Vernon Gearey and Pete Morris from Kingsthorpe Bowling Club. Runners-up were Mark Linnell, Nathan Betts and Mark Betts from West End Bowling Club.
In the 3rd and 4th place game it was a somewhat one-sided affair with Jack Thomas ,Connor Dolby and Neil Moore from Express Bowling Club securing an easy win against Jason Bryan, Jeff Mace and Ray Castle from Kingsthorpe Bowling Club.

Huge congratulations to all our winners and indeed thanks to everyone who entered.

After the competition the majority of players and spectators, together with evening guests, enjoyed a BBQ and plenty of beverages with background music well into the night.

It’s sometimes difficult to bring back something that had been a huge success in the past but all agreed that the day had achieved everything it was set out to do. The main benefactor this year will be MacMillan Cancer Support for whom we raised the magnificent sum of approx £1,400.

These days don’t happen by themselves so Kingsthorpe Bowling Club would like to acknowledge the following individuals for helping to make this happen:-

Sponsors – e-mortgages, In a Flash Couriers, Browns Events Catering, King& Co.

Caterers – Martin Brown from Browns Events Caterers

Disco/Background Music – Mark Clements (who had some awesome playlists!)

Bar Staff Amy, Debbie and Jade – who worked VERY HARD at times keeping up with demand.

Anyone who provided raffle prizes and thanks to Maureen Eales for selling so many tickets.

Thanks to Tina-Jane for using our BOWLR System to create the draw, managing the scorecards and inputting all the results on the day. Finally, a huge thanks to KBC member Matt Desmond, who pretty much single-handedly, made the day tick along so smoothly.

Let’s do it all again in 2024!
