DURBAN, South Africa, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Global financial services company Holborn Assets announced it will be a major sponsor of the annual Hulsar Lawn Bowls Tournament to be held at Umhlali Country Club, Durban. The tournament which has attracted 96 key players from the region will be held July 1 - 3, 2016.
Edward Steffens, Senior Associate, Holborn Assets will play in the tournament and Holborn will have a stand at the event.
The Hulsar Bowls Tournament originated at the Hulett South African Refinery (now Tongaat Hulett) in 1934. The Directors at the time proposed the idea of having an annual Bowls Tournament incorporating all sugar millers who supplied their raw sugar.
Each mill had a Mill Team, made up of mill employees and a Growers Team made up of growers supplying cane to that mill. The Tournament was held on the last weekend of June over three days. The competition included Men's Fours, Millers versus Growers, and Singles (played during the month prior to the Tournament) with a final play off on the last afternoon of the Tournament.
The inaugural Tournament was held in 1935 at the Refinery Recreation Club in Rossburgh. Over the years the number of players increased and the venue moved several times before finding a home at Umhlali Country Club which has two AA rating competition greens recognized by Bowls South Africa.
"We are delighted to be associated with this tournament which is so rich in history, where we can be a part of this wonderful legacy created 81 years ago and to fly our flag for our valued South African clients in this community," said Michele Carby, Senior Partner, Holborn Assets.
The Hulsar Tournament has been held continuously since its inception 81 years ago, even during World War II.
