Tenpin Bowling VS Lawn Bowls
Tenpin Bowling VS Lawn Bowls17 Jan 2022
As you are probably aware, there are two sports in HKFC which are related to “BOWLING” – one is Lawn Bowls and the other is Bowling (or more specifically, Tenpin Bowling). Each of these two sports has its own game rules, bowling equipment, bowling skills, and inter-club league games. The Lawn Bowls Section is one of the bigger and older sporting groups at HKFC, while the Bowling Interest Group is relatively young within HKFC.
On the first of December, we organised a Tenpin Bowling social game with some of the Lawn Bowls Section members. It was a joyful night with lots of laughter and everyone enjoyed the game. During the game, there was also discussion about the different skills in the two “Bowling” sports, and how the proficiency in one sport can benefit or improve the bowling skills in the other. Although the skills in the two sports are very different, we still witnessed Eddie Loke, a Lawn Bowls Section member, bowling the highest game of 190 in the social game. Luckily, the highest overall score was achieved by the Bowling Interest Group, in which our Emy Clarke scored 502 for the 3 games. Congratulations to the event’s winning team Emy Clarke, Tracy Tam and Esmond Lee. Emy and Tracy are from the Bowling Interest Group and Esmond is from the Lawn Bowls Section.
Sportsmen with good sports sense can always pick up new sports easily. Of course, if one wants to be promoted to advance or professional level, regular and frequent practices are unavoidable. Our Bowling Interest Group will organise more social games in the future to promote this sport.
In addition, our Bowling Interest Group was invited to participate in the 2021 President Cup Tenpin Bowling Championships – Inter-club Invitational Cup at SCAA on 20th November. HKFC was represented by Emy Clarke, Tracy Tam and Adrian Li. It was a great opportunity for the team to play among the top players.
Please feel free to join us at our regular practice nights every Thursday from 7pm to 10pm.
