Izzy Fletcher in the record-books as first female to bowl sanctioned 300-game on string machines in the United Kingdom

QubicaAMF and the British Tenpin Bowling Association congratulate youth bowler Izzy Fletcher on her outstanding achievement.

Izzy, who won’t reach the age of 18 until September, bowled her sanctioned perfect game on QubicaAMF String Machines at the Airport Bowl during the YBC (Youth Bowling Club) League on 26th February.

Speaking to QubicaAMF Director of International Relations and Sports Development Roger Creamer, who made the presentation of £1,000, Izzy said that she loved string machines, although a little warry having bowled on free-fall since she was 10 years old. She says that the game is quicker, but it is much more difficult to strike. Whilst admitting that occasionally she leaves a spare configuration she did not expect to bowl her first perfect game on strings.

Izzy’s 300 game comes almost exactly 3 years after Paul Pasion bowled the world’s first perfect game on a string machines, also at the Airport Bowl.
