Allen was a dearly loved member of the club. The Tournament was initiated in 2013 by his brother Joss. Now in its 10th year, it attracts bowlers from various clubs in the area to take part in this annual tournament.

A total of 72 players took part in this year’s event and while the teams were focused – as they enjoyed the glorious sunshine and the special comradery between bowlers – there were some tense moments as the games came to a close.
