Youngest 800 in the UK ever?

No official records have been kept that confirm who was the first junior to roll 800 or who the youngest is. Even the UK Hall of Fame has been unable to confirm information so we asked you the bowlers to help us find out.

Staking a claim was Jack Blyth. Bowling in the fours league at Shipley bowl on the 11th of December Jack at just 15 years and 194 days hit games of 289, 257, 254 for 800 on the nose.

UPDATE – Brandon Roberts rolled a sanctioned 268, 237, 297 and 802 in the 2012 NAYBC Nationals aged 14, 9 months and 13 days.

BTBA National Records

The BTBA are trying to compile a list of current UK high scores as the old record were destroyed and would welcome any feedback to Martin Webster by bowlers on any scores they feel are higher than these published providing they can be verified as sanctioned scores.
