It was a change of events for Nadi pair Munesh Kumar and Arun Kumar after losing their first round but came back to beat the same Bobby Prasad and Dan­iel Vinod 24-12 in the Banana Cup final at the Suva Bowling Club yesterday.

The Kumars had lost to their Nadi neighbours Prasad and Vinod 21-9 in the first round.

 

The two-day tournament saw Commonwealth reps veteran bowl­er Semesa Naiseruvati and Martin Fong also taking the field.

FBC vice president Ramesh Chand said the over 50’s two day pairs tournament was a success.

 

“The good weather and good num­ber of bowlers of 16 men’s and 6 ladies’ teams summed up the suc­cessful event,” Chand said.

“It was tough competition with top local bowlers in action,” he said.

 

Chand acknowledged the support from Paradise Beverages for their cash and prize donations.

The ladies’ category was won by Sheryl Mar and Losalini Tukai.

Semesa Naiseruvatu and Rajnesh Prasad were the defending men’s pair champions while Litia Tikoi­suva and Doreen O’Connor were the defending champions in the women’s champions.

 

Paradise Beverages chief finan­cial officer Vinish Singh said: “We have a great commitment to sup­port our community through spon­sorships focused on music, fashion, arts, environment, leadership de­velopment and sports.

“We are pleased to assist this event which we believe helps and promotes good sportsmanship and in turn boost talent.”

The Banana Cup pair’s tourna­ment started in 1954.
