2017 L&D Youth Tournaments

NEW THINGS are coming starting in 2017!  ANNOUNCING our London and District Ten Pin Bowling Association Annual Youth Tournaments – sponsored by DMAC AUTOMATION

Idmac-logo-small-2t is with great pleasure that we announce our youth tournaments will bring a new sponsor … DMAC Automation http://www.dmacautomation.com.  DMAC Automation will contribute to our scholarship fund so the scholarship prizes will be greatly increased!

You will notice that we are combining all tournaments in one great weekend.  2017 brings with it some exciting changes which are the start of making this an annual EVENT.  Along with increased scholarships…we hope to create some friendly competition between our youth bowling programs with the addition of the Chaplin Challenge this year.  Entry deadline is Feb 13, 2017.

Entry forms and rules can be printed below:



The Chaplin Challenge is a new element being added to the London & District Tenpin Bowling Association Youth Tournaments starting in Feb 2017.

This challenge was named in dedication to a great coach and mentor “Dave Chaplin”. Dave coached many generations of youth in London for over 40 years and this Challenge was created to continue his legacy.  


The cup originated when it was presented to the Huron Junior Bowlers by Frederick Lanes in Kitchener at the very last tournament they competed in before Huron Bowl closed. The former Huron executive decided this would follow them when they merged with Bowlerama Royale.  There it became the award for their annual youth match play tournament.  When Dave Chaplin passed away this cup became the “DAVE CHAPLIN MEMORIAL CUP.”

Starting Feb 2017, it is now time to raise the CUP so Dave’s Legacy is not forgotten.   With Dave’s grandson Robbie’s blessing, The Chaplin Memorial Cup and Scholarship will be shared with all London and District youth in the form of the Chaplin Challenge.


This CHALLENGE was implemented to create competition between the London and District Youth Programs and will run in conjunction with the London & District Youth Tournaments.

At the end of 9 games (Singles, Doubles and Teams) the top 2 females and top 2 males from each house will become the house phantom team. The team with the highest combined 9 game total ALL EVENTS including handicap will be the Chaplin Cup winner!

Top 2 females and top 2 males must have bowled in ALL 3 EVENTS (Singles, Doubles and Teams)

The Cup will be engraved with the winners and will be displayed at the tournaments as well as at the Banquet where the winners will be awarded.

Scholarship to be determined based on available funds.
