THE format for the annual Hutson Cup bowls competition is likely to be changed after the four day event was postponed due to the recent flooding.

The Hutson Cup which is the national fours championship was supposed to start in Nadi on Friday.

Fiji Bowling Association secretary Abdul Kalim said a new date for the tournament would be finalised.

He said the annual general meeting had also been postponed.

"Our annual general meeting coincides with the Hutson Cup," Kalim said.

"So it will now take place at a later date. The Hutson Cup will now be played on a weekend over two days. So the format will have to be looked at. Changes will have to be made because of the time frame that we will have."

"We decided to call off the tournament this weekend because of the floods. Some of our western players were affected."

The Hutson Cup is one of the oldest sporting tournaments in the country. The tournament was first contested back in 1926.
