BTBA Tour – Northants Open

The 8th Stop of the BTBA Tour was the Northants Open at Wellingborough. Wellingborough has a long tradition of holding tournaments and used to be a venue for Diane Joyce’s AMF’s Tour. For this years event the lanes had been refurbished and were looking great, and the scores certainly were higher then previous years.

A fantastic turnout of 61 bowlers, which was the highest attendance numbers for this tour stop in the 3 years I’ve been steward of the tour. 2017 saw 39 bowlers, 2018 saw 50 bowlers, and 2019 saw 61 bowlers take part.

There was a handicap and scratch prize fund once again boosted by the Tour Sponsors, B&P fabrications Leicester, Striking Shirts and PDQ Printing Services.

The format was a simple one, every bowler bowled 6 games and that was it. Not cuts or final steps or round robins – the idea was to keep it cheap and make it quick.

There were 3 qualifying blocks.
In the 9.15am squad – Rob Thurlby shot the highest scores with 1387 a 231 average, with Jamie Alder in 2nd on 1265 and His partner in crime Dan Balsom 3rd with 1258. Top Lady was Elyse Giddens on 1237..

Into the 1.00 squad – Hayley Russell was the squad winner with 1302 a 217 average, with youngster Jack Blyth 2nd on 1268 and Alison Taylor in 3rd on 1265
In the final squad at 4.15 – current BTBA tour leader Pete Stevenson went crazy with games of 257, 261, 234,245,278 and 236 for a 1511 a 252 average ! 2nd in this squad was Daniel Lewis on 1276 and third was Richard Balaam on 1229. Top Senior bowler was Cliff Dew on 1232 and top Senior lady was Kimberley Oakley on 1047

A great event that again demonstrates how popular the BTBA tour has become – There was a great blend of bowlers of all abilities and the event was well supported by bowlers from the local league program.
