With so many worthy UK bowlers that could be inducted into the UK Tenpin Hall of Fame it was a difficult task for the committee to induct just four in the first year. Nominations were made by each of the ten members and a list was drawn up. The Committee then had access to researched details on each player and a ballot was held to find the final four to be inducted in 2013. After the ballot with each inductee needing a two thirds majority, the final four and service awardee were selected without the need for a second ballot. The players selected were chosen for their achievements in World, European and Domestic tournaments and for additional honours like World Bowler of the Year and induction into the World Bowling Writers Hall of Fame.

As well as the players being celebrated and honoured the committee decided there should be an industry award for distinguished service. Since the sport arrived on our shores special individuals all over the United Kingdom have dedicated their time to improving the game and working tirelessly to make the sport better for everyone. From YBC officials to tournament organizers these people are the backbone of our sport and make it possible for bowlers to reach for the stars.

hall_of_fame_gold_with_arch.pngAbout the UK Tenpin Hall of Fame

A UK Tenpin Hall of Fame has been long overdue for many years. We have had many amazing bowlers who have won just about everything from World Cups and World Championships to PBA and European titles. But there was never a place to honour these exceptional bowlers until now. At long last some of the most influential people in UK bowling have been brought together to form the UK Tenpin Hall of Fame.

They include; International bowling writer and former World of Tenpin owner Keith Hale chaired the committee, Secretary of the Tenpin bowling Proprietors Association John Ashbridge, BTBA chairman Pat White and BTBA’s Bernie White, Bowltech UK’s Nick Keppe, Bowling Vision’s Graham Waller, TV Commentator Cass Edwards, PTBC’s Andy James, Former NST creator David Grainger, Former British Open organizer and AMF Humber’s Jock Caie and Talktenpin’s Dominic Gall.

With many thanks to Wes Pye at Storm Bowling the awards will be sponsored by Storm Products Inc and for 2013 four players (Two women and two men) will be inducted. There will also be an industry award for Distinguished Service with sponsor to be announced soon.

The inductions are planned to take place at the Weber Cup at the Metrodome in Barnsley prior to the Sunday afternoon session on October 13th with the presentations being televised for Sky Sports.
