The annual Symphony Bowling Tournament in its second year on 15 June 2013, took place at the Cosmic Bowl in Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur. Although it was an early morning start, there were still plenty of bright and cheery faces dressed in blue as 200 Symphonians and their family members took over the bowling alley and got ready to bowl their way to victory.
Mohan from Group Corporate Human Resource led a short stretching session, heightening the level of excitement in the air as teams members put on their game faces and prepared to face-off. After a brief warm up and practice, the 36 teams started bowling.
There were plenty of ups and downs throughout the tournament as teams threw spares, strikes and in some cases, gutter-balls in an attempt to win the Grand Prize of RM1,000! After completing two hard fought rounds, the “SSR Bowlers” won and emerged triumphant as “Bolos” and “Change” claimed the second and third places respectively.
The winners were presented with cash prizes and medals by Wendy Khoo, Head of Group Corporate Human Resource, with prizes given to the top 5 teams and the Best Male and Female Bowlers based on their overall score. The list of winners and their prizes are as follows:
Top 5 Teams
SSR Bowlers – RM1000
Bolos – RM750
Change – RM500
Strike Force – RM300
Darusyifa’ – RM200
Best Male: Patrick Ting Pek Kieng – RM150
Best Female: Vannesha A/P Andrew – RM150
Regardless of who won, smiles and good times were enjoyed by all. For those looking forward to the next tournament, keep your ball-handling skills sharp as your chance for glory might come very soon.
