Middlesex Sports Association is perhaps best known to many in the
Province via the annual circulation of the MMSA Membership cards.
However we have recently found it was not economical to produce
the cards. If you are a Middlesex Mason you are automatically a
member of the of MMSA.
The MMSA has been going from strength to strength in recent years
with more sports being played than ever and a growing following
of older and younger brethren alike.
MMSA was instituted by R. W. Bro. Norman Moore in the 1950s. Many
have speculated that the idea came from various challenge sports
matches at the time, including cricket matches with representatives
from the then Royal Masonic Boy’s School Team. Cricket was
certainly one of the earlier sports, but the MMSA quickly grew to
encompass Angling, Bowls, Bridge, Golf. In more recent years Clay
shooting become a popular sports. Over the last 2 years the number
of sports which rank under the banner of the MMSA has also grown
to Football, Sailing and Cycling.
The early growth and success of the MMSA has been attributed by
many to the sterling work of the late W. Bro. Walter Lowe, coupled
with W. Bro. Don Brown. Their tireless efforts have been continued
by the current President, Chairman and Secretary.
Fundamental to the MMSA is the substantial monies that have been
raised by freemasons enjoying their sports and through sponsorship
events. The MMSA has now raised over £300,000 for various
charities. The work for charities continues as does the fun enjoyed
by the over 5000 members.
