THE much anticipated 2017 Victor Clarke tournament received a huge boost with a timely sponsorship from Shipping Services Fiji Ltd.
The tournament which is scheduled at Lautoka’s Bowling Club greens at the end of this month is expected to attract some of the country’s finest bowlers.
Tournament official Kaushik Maharaj thanked the sponsors for the commitment to promote and develop the sport in the ‘Sugar City.’ He said the tournament would not only attract big names but would also unearth new talents especially with the huge numbers of responses shown at the weekly business house competition.
Maharaj said the presence of last year’s joint winners Rajnesh Prasad and Nadi-based Bobby Prasad would lift the standard of the competition.
“We are thankful to Shipping Services for coming on board to support this year’s Victor Clarke tournament,” he said.
“We are looking forward to a successful event knowing there will be many big names that will be out to deny the defending champions the title.
“We are also expecting to see the exposure of new bowlers in this year’s tournament as we have seen a number of interested new bowlers during the weekly business house competition.”
The tournament to be held on July 29 -30. Meanwhile, the final of the Parmar’s Footware-sponsored Lautoka business house weekly competition was to be held last night between Par 5 and Finance (FSC).
