Cranbrook Park Bowling Club First Sikh Bowls Champion...

(By my Brother)

My Uncle, Jaswant Singh Bahra aged 61 has been playing bowls for two years. He was the first non-white player to join Cranbrook Park Bowling Club (East London). The club was established in 1912 and this year my uncle won two separate club competitions. His name has been engraved on the winners wall in the club house... On behalf of all his family, we congratulate him and hope he continues making progress in this wonderful sport. Below are some photos from the event.
