Singapore-based Filipinos dominated the Australasian Filipino Bowlers’ Friendship Games 2019 held on Apr 6-7 in Hong Kong by winning the ladies’ singles, ladies’ masters and men’s masters.

But the bowlers from Makati took top honors in the overall team standing.

 Hosts Filipino Bowling Club of Hong Kong picked up a gold trophy courtesy of its founder and president Jenny Gafate, who rolled 236 for the ladies’ masters high game.

The Hong Kong-based team reaped thanks and praise for their successful hosting of the event, which this year saw a team from Britain join their fellow Filipinos in the fun.

On their flight back to London, the guys from the UK said the “fun and laughter were remarkable memories to treasure” while the Australia-based bowlers, on their journey back to Melbourne, called it “one helluva event”. 

The two-day tournament opened on Apr 6 at Dacos Bowling Centre in Tsuen Wan with Deputy Consul General Germinia Usudan welcoming the various teams.

Former Ambassador to Australia Minda Cruz, who had served as a consul in Hong Kong, set the tone for the tournament by exhorting players to help a charity of their choice through their events such as this.

Responding to her appeal, Gafate said part of the funds raised during the event was donated to the children’s cancer foundation that the retired diplomat was supporting.
