Joell Gives Bowling Ball To Afghanistan Team

November 28, 2018

While competing at the World Bowling Men’s Championships in Hong Kong, Dennis Joell realized the team from Afghanistan came to the event without equipment and were using borrowed balls from a center next door, so the Bermudian bowler purchased another ball, and gave his own ball to the team.

In a post on Instagram, World Bowling said, “Dennis Joell of Bermuda is in Hong Kong competing at the World Bowling Men’s Championships against the best bowlers in the world.

“He chose to buy a new bowling ball to play with at the event but instead of taking his other $200 bowling ball home with him, the ball was regifted to the Afghanistan team who arrived at event with no equipment and were using ‘house balls’ from the public center next to the competition venue.

“It’s moments like these when we realise the power of sport and the friendship it brings,” said Technical Director Marios Nicolaides who aided the switch in equipment.
