SHERATON will be the team to beat at the annual Hutson Cup Championship at the Nadi Sports Club this weekend.

Skippered by national rep Samuela Tui, Sheraton will defend the title.

Tamavua with new skipper Semesa Naiseruvati will pose a threat to Sheraton. Suva will be guided by Dan Lum On while Nadi will have the services of Shorab Khan. Ba will have former world number three Ratish Lal, Abdul Kalim, Iliaz Khan and Santok Singh.

The quartet recently represented Fiji at the Tiger Bowls Championship in Hong Kong and the China Open.

Kalim, who is the Bowls Fiji secretary, said matches would be played on a round-robin basis.

"The Hutson Cup is the Inter-District Championship for bowling," he said.

"This will be the 88th edition of the competition."

The Hutson Cup is the oldest bowling event dating back to 1926. The trophy was given by the then Governor of Fiji Sir Eyre Hutson.

Ba won the inaugural title.
