More Information:

In 1954 Mary was the first ever Canadian Singles Champion.  Rolling a ten game total of 2692, she also helped her teammates win the Ladies Canadian Title.  In 1973, due to a change of the play-off format, it is now impossible for any bowler, man or woman, to even come close to her record.


Mary was a member of five Western Canada Ladies All-Star Teams, the last being in 1971.  In 1960, Mary Currie set the Ladies Team High Single record of 418, which lasted for over 20 years.

Mary Currie was always a great supporter of the sport of 5-pin bowling and during the bowling season, took time out of her own schedule to instruct at the youth bowling level.  In 1973, the Canadian Bowling Congress honoured Mary Currie by presenting her with the All-Time Award for continued excellence in 5-pin bowling.


In 2009, Mary Currie was named one of the top 100 bowlers by the Canadian 5-pin Bowling Association during their 100 year celebration: Century of Excellence – Top 100 Award.
