Year Inducted 2018

Gerry Bugden was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Weber Cup in Milton Keynes in June in front of family, friends and the Weber cup crowd. The award was received by Gerry’s Son Glenn Bugden and Daughter Lynette Witt.

Glenn and Lynette were then joined by their family and female inductee Nikki Hamilton and her family

Gerry is only the second English male bowler to win an individual Gold medal at the World Championships. He represented England as Adult level and no doubt would have won more medals if his career hadn’t been so tragically cut short.
