Tenpin get bowled over

The British University Tenpin Bowling Association (BUTBA) Cup final against Loughborough, Sheffield, and Portsmouth took place in Rugby last bank holiday Sunday.

In the semi-final, we were matched against our Northern dominant rival, Sheffield. Facing six strong Sheffield bowlers who all had 180-pin averages, Imperial bowlers showed remarkable resilience. After an enthralling battle, Imperial team B (Kelvin Wong (c), Michael Lau, and Raymond Yang) were only 6 pins behind the opponents, with scores 505-498, 493-498, and 513-521. Although we lost 1-15 overall, there is no shame in defeat.

On the flip side, our best Imperial bowler, Hui Erh Tay, has never let us down.
