Sad Passing of Neil Lever

The  BTBA Chairman, National Council and Head Office staff were shocked and very sorry to learn that Neil Lever passed away on Saturday 3rd May 2014 in Canada where he had been living for the past nine years.

Neil was not only well known as an International bowler who represented his country but also worked hard for the promotion of Tenpin Bowling in the UK.    He was an active and respected member of the National Council where he held the position of Vice Chairman for a number of years.
