SHERATON, skippered by national bowls rep Samuela Tui, retained the Hutson Cup men's division title at the Nadi Sports Club on Sunday.

The Sheraton team with Arun Kumar, David Aitcheson and Jona Koroitamana won all the seven matches in the round robin competition.

In the final round, Sheraton defeated Tamavua 26-15 in the final match.

All of the players in the Sheraton team are part of the national training squad vying for the Commonwealth Games.

Ba, skippered by former Fiji number three Ratish Lal, finished second in the competition with five wins and two losses. The side had the services Abdul Kalim, Santokh Singh and Iliaz Khan.

Tournament co-ordinator Curtis Mar thanked sponsors Williams & Goslings and ANZ Bank for their support.

Curtis said the ladies division competition was held for the first time.

"It was pleasing to note a number of new bowlers who participated in this very prestigious event for the first time," he said.

"The Hutson Cup is one of the oldest trophies on the Bowls Fiji calendar. It was first played in 1926 which is 88 years ago.

"Unfortunately, the trophy was destroyed in a fire a couple of years ago and Bowls Fiji is looking for a sponsor to replace it."

The ladies competition concluded on Saturday with Nadi, skippered by Sheryl Mar, crowned the winner.

Sheryl was ably assisted by Doreen O'Connor, Savea Khan and Soro Scott.

Suva finished as the runner-up.

Curtis said the level of competition was high.

"It was a stiff battle throughout the weekend. Bowls Fiji is able to continue with its development and we expect to see further success on the international stage in the not-too-distant future."
