Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th June 2019

We had some very high scoring in this weekend’s event; we used our Kegel Flex to put down one of Shipley’s House patterns. This was 41’ with 25.11 ml oil with a ratio of 8.67:1.

The winners of this year’s doubles event. The Yorkshire Tykes who consisted of Rob Harding and Wayne Greenall. A outstanding well done to both of them.

The Tournament averages were as follows:
Qualifying (64 bowlers x 6 games = 384) – 192.8 (of which 188 games were 200+)
Semi Finals (24 bowlers x 3 games=72) – 207.08
Round Robin Final (12 bowlers x 5 games = 60) – 180.55
Total Tournament (516 games) 197.9

Shipley’s Steve Kay qualifying with an amazing 1481 which averaged out at 246.83.

The semi final cut was 2773 and was held by the Yorkshire young lions unfortunately they were not able to field a team in the semi finals so the position went to 13th who were Porkies Pro Shops, Kieran Patel and Darren Michael.

The winning team will receive a 2019 tour shirt courtesy of striking shirts this was The Yorkshire Tykes
The big chief from Striking Shirts said #LOOKNIFTYGET50. Anyone who wore a Striking Shirt who then bowled a perfect game of 300 he would give the bowler £50, this was unfortunately left in his wallet this year as there were loads of close calls including Rob’s 297 game but nobody managed to score perfection.
