Caro Bowl

Scarbro Caro Bowl

The Scarbro Caro Bowl is Auckland’s top Interclub competition. It takes its name from the trophy “Maurice S Caro Memorial Bowl” which was donated in memory of the late Maurice S Caro, who was killed in action on the 2nd of July 1916 in the first battle of the Somme (WW1). He was a Parnell player. If you were to view the trophies, you would notice that the women's trophy only has results from 1990 onward. This is because until that time, the men's and women's Caro Bowl had been played together, with only a single trophy (now the men's trophy) being presented to the winning mixed team.

Parnell has a very proud history in the Caro Bowl competition, having won the trophy more than any other club in Auckland. Caro Bowl Friday nights at the club have traditionally been very well supported by club members, and it is not uncommon to see the viewing decks packed with spectators enjoying the tennis.
