Uckfield Bowls Club held its Invitation Open Day triples tournament on Sunday June 16.

The annual event brings together 16 invited Sussex teams to play for the Fred King Memorial Trophy.

As well as providing lunch and afternoon tea for the visitors the host club members ran several side events and the tournament was played with the usual friendly, sporting and competitive spirit.

The casual and relaxed atmosphere was enhanced by some unexpected afternoon sunshine and warmth following a cloudy and damp start.

Uckfield Bowls Club are indebted to all who take part, a number of whom have been coming since the first event 10 years ago, and appreciate their continued support.

The winning team of Peter Menniss, June Page and Valerie Menniss collected the Fred King Trophy. The runners-up were Chris Thomas, Avril Thomas and Mary Lynch.
