Honours go to Central

All together: The Central Cambridge and Cambridge Bowling clubs together in competition.

Friendly competition was rife when Cambridge’s two lawn bowling clubs competed for the honour of winning the Elite Building Compliance Trophy last week.

It was Cambridge’s turn to host and defend its two previous consecutive wins but it was Central Cambridge that came home the winner 14-10 after being down 5-7 at the lunch break.

The format saw 4 x 75-minute games of 2 bowl triples (18 players from each club) fighting it out with friendly banter and a variety of skills and luck, all to the backdrop of foot-tapping music.

Don and Audrey Harris, owners of Elite Building Compliance Ltd and staunch members of the Cambridge club, presented the trophy to the lawn bowling fraternity of Cambridge in 2008 and have competed in the annual event throughout that time.

The now disbanded Leamington Bowling Club was part of the challenge for many years too.
