Prior to the start of the Bermuda Tenpin Bowling Classic, Rickai Binns set a new Bermuda Record when he bowled a 829 series in the TBI Menís Classic Bowling League at the Warwick Lanes.
This record beats the Bermudian Record and the Warwick Lanes Record.
An 800 series requires a player to bowl a minimum of 266 or more in each of the three games, Binns bowled an average of 279 with games of 266, 276, and 287.
The previous Bermudian Record was held by Dean Lightbourne who bowled a 827 in an International competition in St. Louis.
Binns also moved ahead of the previously Warwick Lanes record held by Kevin Swan of 819.
Binns, a member of the Goslings Black Seal Rum team for two years, now tops the list of a group of 800 series local bowlers playing in league or tournament play at Warwick Lanes.
Other members of the elite group include Levinc Samuels 815, David Maycock 813, Lamar Richardson 813 and Damien Matthews 811.
Following the conclusion of the Bermuda Tenpin Bowling Championships, Binns along with Maycock, Patrice Tucker and June Dill will turn their attention to International competition as they head to The Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championships in Johannesburg, South Africa from November 19th - 25th.
Binns and Maycock will waste very little time reflecting on the South Africa competition as they will head the PBA World Series of Bowling VIII at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., USA.
They will be joined by Jermaine Desilva and LeVinc Samuels.
