McFarlane Bowling Association and Tournament

Bowling has a long tradition at Bell, beginning in 1919 when Lewis Browne McFarlane, then President of Bell Canada and a beloved telephone pioneer, donated a trophy to the company's bowling league. More than 95 years later, Bell team members, pensioners and partners continue to play in the annual tournament, and many players in Toronto and Montréal play in Bell leagues.
