Simply Shutters Sponsors Mr G’s Trios Ten Pin Bowling league.
Simply Shutters have been sponsoring the local Ten Pin Bowling League situated in Brandon Suffolk for the past season. The league is well attended every Wednesday night with 2 x 21 week seasons being played each year.
Sponsorship takes the form of cups and trophies that Simply Shutters, in connection with Mr G’s, supply.
Players of all ages and abilities play in the league and competition is fierce but friendly between the teams.
Trio’s or 3 person teams usually have 4 or 5 members that rotate in and out so that everybody gets a fair number of matches during the season. The additional players also provide much needed cover when another member cannot make it.
Mr Nolan Guthrie, the owner and proprietor of Mr G’s is a popular figure within the club and no slouch when it comes to bowling himself. He is supported by his wife and two sons who assist with the catering/ restaurant and bar activities as well as administering the bowling leagues run there.
This year has just seen the end of the first 21 week season of 2008 with team Going Spare winning the league outright for the first time. Going Spare is sponsored by Simply Shutters Ltd and is a team that was made up of individual players that did not have a team of their own or know anyone else.
Paul Millar, Director of Simply Shutters Ltd and a member of the Going Spare bowling team himself, reckons that this achievement is remarkable given the team’s beginnings and the overall quality and standard within the league. The winning team members are:
Gavin Cox (team captain)
The league was won last season by the RAY Team.
Gavin Cox, team captain says that this year will be the last time that Going Spare will bowl as a team as they are not ‘going spare’ any more! From next season Going Spare will be known as the Alley Gators because Simply Shutters is splashing the cash again with new 1960’s retro look bowling shirts complete with logo making them arguably the snappiest team in the league!
New players of any ability are always welcomed
