SPR Bowling, All Star Lanes, Brick Lane, London
11 March 2020

I’m pleased to report that despite the arrival of coronavirus in the UK, nearly all of those who had signed up for the first SPR social event of 2020 made it to the All Star Lanes bowling alley in East London.

The event, which proved to be as competitive as ever, was won by a mixed company team made up of Michael Green, Matthew Hall, James Purvis, Ben Russell, Joel Suissa and Joanna Turner. This may well be the first time the bowling has been won by a team including three SPR committee members.


Their score of 729 pushed ‘Savills 1’ into second place on 624 points, while a further mixed team, a second team from Savills and a team from PMA also scored creditably.


Prizes were awarded to the winning team during the much appreciated refreshments that followed.  James Purvis also won a bottle of prosecco for making the highest individual score of 137, followed by Michael Green with 125 and Ben Raywood in third place on 122.

It proved to be an enjoyable evening with a good balance of networking and competition – bowling has proved to be an ideal activity for both the novice and regular practitioner.
