Smrikva Bowl Tournament
SB Heritage Olive Oil - "seeds of the Legends" Limited edition
Smrikve, 28th of April 2019 – June 2020
In 2005, for the 10th Smrikva Bowl anniversary, we started a tradition of planting an Olive tree during our Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s nomination ceremony.
The Olive tree selected are traditionally older then our players. The age of the tree is a symbol of intergenerational responsibility. Every person is born without knowing anything about life on this earth and it is the responsibility of every generation to understand and to learn to preserve all that each of us is born with.
In March 2019 we bottled for the first time a special collection.
At the time 14 generations (over 1440 players) had their olive trees when the story of limited collections started. The children who planted our olives makes the collection bottles so special.
As of March 2019, over 1930 players from 87 countries and 6 continents participated and on the first 14 collection bottles representing 14 generations was written the following:
Smrikva Bowl was founded in 1996 and over 1930 players from 87 countries and 6 continents participated so far. In 2005 Smrikva Bowl players started to plant olive trees. 14 generations (over 1440 players) have their olive tree in Smrikve.
As of 18/03/2019, their track record* is:
• 30 (23) junior Grand Slam titles conquered by 23 (17) players
