Tenpin Boling Perpaduan, Hari Merdeka 2009

In conjunction with this year Merdeka Celebration, the Petaling District Tenpin Bowling Association together with MILO & Sportunite, organized a bowling tournament amongst schools in the Klang Valley today, August 15, 2009.

There was a huge turn-out of participants from the Secondary Schools. However, the entry from Primary School is very alarming. There were only 4 teams from the Primary Schools that took part. So much so, that the organizers had to invite make-up teams, from Charity Homes.

Where are the rest of the Primary Schools? Were they not aware of the tournament? This would have been one of the best opportunities for schools to encourage and promote Tenpin Bowling amongst their students, since this is basically a “Fun” Tournament.

Sure enough, the participants had lots of fun during the tournament, especially the children from the Charity Homes. They threw away the basics of bowling and tournament to the winds. All they wanted to do was have great fun. All of them were eagerly waiting for their turn to bowl and some of them kept holding on to the ball while waiting. You also see all kind of bowling styles.

The winner for the Secondary School section was SMK Subang Jaya, represented by Tengku Nazrin, Victoria Chin, Kitty Lo and Wong Mei Yuen. The Individual winner for boys was Azry Haziq and the girl title goes to Wong Mei Yuen.

The Primary School section was won by SK Sri Selangor, represented by Mohd Haikal, Puteri Najia, Sim Wei Liang and Muhammad Nur Hazarizq. The Individual winners were Muhammad Nur Hazarizq and Puteri Najia in the boys and girls category respectively.

This time around, the Organizers presented Trophies, for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for both the Secondary and the Primary Schools. The winning schools ought to be proud of their school team.

The close of the tournament was accompanied by shouts of “Malaysia Bolih! Malaysia Bolih! Malaysia Bolih!” by all the participants. They were later treated to a small “Makan” of Fried Meehoon and Fried Rice with a cup of light juice to drown them down.
