Mixed Pairs Championship 2018/9

Furzebrook was packed last Tuesday (27th November) with thirty members entering the annual mixed pairs championship. As always pairs were drawn so that the 'best' bowlers can't team up and dominate proceedings and as a result it was a closely fought afternoons bowls and only one pair, Sue Barton and Alex Sime, were able to win all four of their matches to give them 8 points and a +23 shot difference and so become our champions for the 2018/9 season. Two pairs succeeded in winning three of their matches with Rose Sime and Don Hewitt accumulating 6 points with a +12 shot difference to give them second place just ahead of Jackie Beazer and Bob Bates who had 6 points and a +11 shot difference.

Special congratulations to Alex, Sue and Rose who only joined us back in September and who did so well; the rest of are going to have to 'up our game' if these new members continue to develop and improve over the coming months!

Entries are now open for the triples championship which will take place on Tuesday 29th January 2019, the sign up sheet is on the Club notice board.
