Deepak Vyas and Team Lead with Huge Score at Captain’s Tourney

Coastweek-- Captain’s Tournament was held at the Bowling Green on Saturday, the 28th January 2017 sponsored by Kirti Chhaniyara, reports MARIAM K HASSANALI.

A lot of practise had been on going on the greens on Tuesdays and Thursdays from early January by Vijay and Shobha Bij, Ali Jeneby, the new Captain Deepak Vyas, immediate past Captain, Kirti Channiyara, Pankaj and Binita Shah, Alihusein Namajee, Dr. Dhillon, Simon Mwasela and on rare occasion Mariam and Kalim Hassanali, all determined to win this major tournament.

This was the last tournament for 2016/2017 bowling season.

On the day of the tournament there was excitement in the air with 24 bowlers participating.

There were four leagues of six bowlers each and each league had two teams of three players, a skip, a second and a lead.

The game played was trips i.e. each player had three woods to play.

The lead places the wood as close to the jack (small yellow ball) as possible which gives the second and the Skip the confidence to win the end.

18 ends were played over three hours.

All this practice and pouring of the sweat paid off for the team led by Deepak Vyas with Vijay Bij as, the second and Shobha Bij as the lead who emerged the winners with a huge score of 36 to 3.

The team led by Chandu Shah with Kusum Patel as the second and Mariam Hassanali as the lead came second with 26 to 11.

The oldest player in the tournament was 88 years old and the youngest, Gavin Norbert Fernandes, a teenager.

The game was followed by the Section’s Annual General Meeting and delicious dinner prepared by the Club’s chef and sponsored by the outgoing Captain, Kirti. 

Bowling on the green is an outdoor game that has fascinated both young and old.

It is a sensible exercise with great physiological value.

It is recommended for people who think that they are past very active sports or those who think high speed sport is not for them.

Bowling provides a number of health benefits, including impro-ved fitness, improved coordi-nation and skill development and low risk physical activity because it is low impact, social discourse with a friendly crowd, and community connectedness and support.

Bowls is a happy mind, a body kept fit and a spirit rejuvenated.

With the above in mind, the members of the Mombasa Sports Club, young and old are welcomed to join in the game.

There is no expense to buy the woods initially as the woods (left over by members who have left the country or to heavenly abode) can be used for practice until one is ready to buy their own woods.
