The cream of the crop competed for the most prestigious trophies in the district at the Kingfisher Bowling Association (KBA) Masters Singles at Margate recently.
There is a strict qualifying procedure to be honoured with an invitation to this tournament, as it is limited to 12 men and 12 women.
Port Shepstone’s Eddie Fann and Margate’s Pam Cole-Cook were crowned champions for 2018.
Both players have received invitations to play in the National Bowling South Africa Veteran’s Masters.
The runners-up were Roy Anderson (PSCC) and Leoni Booth (PED), and third were Louw Vermeulen (Bell) and Shane Nienaber (RSC), and Dora Vosloo (MCC) and Jane Massam (HIB).
It has been another excellent year for Fann.
The bowls legend, who boasts over 30 singles titles at district and national level, also won the KBA Open Singles and KBA Champion of Champions this year.
The KBA Masters title completes a hat-trick of titles in 2018. On receiving the Masters trophy, Fann announced his retirement from Singles bowls, the legend bowing out on the ultimate high.
The KBA annual general meeting was held on Monday where the 2018/19 Executive were elected.
