SATYA'S Fast Food took out the ANZ Bank-sponsored business house cup title at the Nadi Sports Club on Wednesday.

The side defeated Williams & Gosling 20-18 in a closely contested final.

Satya's Fast Food with players such as Salesh Kumar, Satya Nadan, Hiten Kumar, Rajnil Prasad and Shumit Payda remained unbeaten in the tournament.

Payda said they would be defending the title next year.

"It was a tough battle during the final," he said.

"We are excited to win the cup title for the first time."

Fiji Airways won the plate title after a fight back against Sanjeet Sen's Acme Garments team.

Jack's of Fiji won the bowl title after beating Fiji Gas. Westpac Bank won the shield title defeating Air Terminal Services.

Club bowls director Bobby Prasad said the five weeks competition proved to be exciting.

"Many new players were involved," he said.

"All the 96 players recieved prizes. We are in the process of lining up sponsors for the next tournament."
