Dave Maberley

It is with deep regret and sadness that we have to report the sad passing of one of the BTBA’s honorary life members, Dave Maberley.  Dave was a regular tournament bowler when the sport was establishing itself in this country and he went on to help and assist in the running of the Premier Tenpin Bowling Club (PTBC).  Dave served the BTBA on both local and national committee’s and during his time established many leagues that are still running today.  More recently Dave has served on the Bedfordshire Area committee and with his wife Pam established Dunstable’s league program.

The BTBA would like to recognise and thank Dave for his years of dedicated service and pass on our sincerest condolences to his wife Pam and his family.
