Bowling brothers Nathan and Alex Mitchell have struck success.

Nathan, 8, who attends Ludlow Junior School, and Alex, 6, who is a pupil at Sholing Infant School, are members of Millbrook Youth Tenpin Bowling Club from Tenpin Southampton, and recently entered their first major tournament.

They bowled in three events – singles doubles and all events – competing against other bowlers of their age group nationally.

Nathan came second in singles and first in doubles when paired with Alex and third in all events.

Alex came first in handicap singles, first in all events handicap, and also won a trophy as an encouragement award for being the youngest bowler in the tournament.
