Charity Ten Pin Bowling Tournament – Cheltenham

The Rotary Club of Cheltenham invites you to an evening of fun and fund-raising at Hollywood Bowl, The Brewery, Cheltenham on Monday 7th November 2016.

Teams of up to six players will be recruited to bowl for one session (lasting approx. one hour). They will be charged an entry fee of £15 per team – roughly equivalent to 50% of the cost of hiring a lane for six people for one session. We are hoping to get at least 30 teams to take part and will start the first group at 6:30 p.m, with an overall finish around 10:00 p.m.

Teams will raise sponsorship and be offered the opportunity to keep 50% of what they raise for their own nominated charity or good cause. The balance of the proceeds will be given by the Club to the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.

For more information or for entry details, please contact Paul Clark, tel: 01242 517916 or e-mail
