Anniversary Tournament

200th Anniversary Tournament

On 14 September 2021 six clubs took part in a tournament to celebrate Friary Bowling Club’s 200th anniversary.  The tournament was originally scheduled to take place in 2020 but had to be postponed because of the pandemic.

Despite heavy rain in the early morning and an unpromising weather forecast the day turned out to be fine and teams from Andover, Colden Common, Hyde Abbey, Littleton, Twyford and of course Friary enjoyed an exciting tournament. Played on a round robin basis, the tournament was closely contested.  After four rounds of matches each team had won two and lost two, so each team went into the final round of matches with a chance of winning the tournament.  Colden Common, Friary and Hyde Abbey all won their final matches but Hyde Abbey were the eventual winners of the tournament by virtue of having scored more shots than their rivals.

After the presentation of the trophy by Friary Chairman Ralph Maingot the players and spectators enjoyed a delicious tea in the Friary clubhouse.
