On Wednesday 13th June Valley Leisure’s, Riverside Bowl hosted their first ever free Inter School’s Bowling Tournament.
Mixed year groups came down from Andover C of E, Anton Junior School, Knights Enham Junior School, Portway Junior School, Roman Way Primary School and Vigo Junior School. Over the day they competed against each other in a two-game playoff where anticipation grew, and scores changed from one school to another. There were also medals for the highest overall individual scorers.
‘The atmosphere was fantastic, the children were engaged and improved with each round showing a natural development of the sport’ said Ben Thambipillai, Assistant Manager.
‘Whilst having fun it was amazing to see the support the children were giving each other with hints, tips and positioning when bowling the ball, their attitude and behaviour were a credit to their schools’ said Nicki Grimison, Facility Manager.
“The Children gained a great experience of fun and competitiveness throughout the day and gained a wider understanding of working as a team” Class Teacher from Portway School
The victorious team was Andover C of E, 2nd place Knights Enham Junior School and 3rd Place Anton Junior School.
Individual Highest Scorers were:
Tiarna with 101, Adam with 82 and James with 78.
