Brentwood & District Bowling Association
Bennetts association with Brentwood Bowling can be traced back to the 1930’s when Arthur Bennett sponsored the annual “Cock of the Green” competition. For the winner of the competition Arthur commissioned the distinctive, perpetual winners trophy – a mounted silver Cockerel, which to this day remains proudly on display in the trophy cabinet of the Central Essex Bowls Club.
In July 2003 Bennetts enhanced their commitment to local bowling by establishing in association with the Brentwood & District Bowling Association, an annual, one day tournament, open to one mens and one ladies team from each of the fifteen member clubs of the Association.
In recognition of Arthur’s appreciation of the game, the tournament was aptly named – “The Arthur Bennett Memorial Trophy”
The winning Club retains the impressive perpetual trophy for twelve months, whilst each winner and runner up player receives their own individual trophy to keep.
In addition to the establishment of the Arthur Bennett Memorial Trophy, Bennetts took responsibility for the ongoing sponsorship of the Associations Triples competition, which runs throughout the bowling season, concluding on Association finals day. To compliment the competition a new perpetual trophy was provided by Bennetts, which the winning team retain for twelve months, with the winner and runner up players each receiving individual trophies to keep.
