West Moors Badgers v Wareham Saxons

For their latest league match the Saxons travelled to West Moors to play the Badgers and it turned out to be a very close encounter. The four of Ken McMillan, Tricia Stinchcombe, Don Hewitt and Ken Leonard got a creditable draw but the three of Tina Leonard, Jackie Beazer and Peter Orchard went down by two shots having been six ahead at one point. Some remarkable bowling by the Badger triple's number two turned several ends from Saxon wins to losses in the closing stages.

Wareham Saxons v Ensbury Hawks

The Saxons came up against a strong Ensbury Hawks team at Furzebrook yesterday afternoon. The triple of Eileen Brown, Dave Wright and Tina Leonard did exceptionally well to win by 9 shots but the triple of Jane Hall, Ray Miller, Eileen Casey and Ken Leonard went down by 10 giving the Hawks a 1 shot win overall. Despite the loss a creditable performance from the Saxons who had two members of the four making their league debut. It seems Ensbury Hawks have won 4 of their 5 league games so far this season so they are no pushovers!

Club Ladies Singles 2018

The Club Ladies Singles was held yesterday afternoon and what a lovely afternoon it was complete with a little bit if late ‘drama’. After three games each it looked as though no one could stop Tina Leonard who had won all three of her games building up a massive 27 shot advantage in the process. However, in her last game Tina found herself on the mat, one wood left, two shots down and the score at 3-3; was what seemed like inevitable victory going to lost at the last minute?

Ladies Singles reminder

Just a reminder that next Tuesday, 30th October, is the annual Ladies' Singles championship and so the mats will all be in use for that so, unless you have not entered, there will be no bowls for you I'm afraid. If you have entered don't forget to turn up! Please be ready for a prompt 2.00pm start and it's white tops as usual for competitions.

Men's Singles Championship 2018

Congratulations to Peter Lane, the deserved winner of this year's Club Men's Championship. Peter won all four of his matches with a shot difference of +22. Norman Brown pushed him hard but eventually came in as runner-up despite winning all four games with a +14 shot difference. Third place went to Ken McMillan with three wins and a draw; these three were the only ones to go all afternoon without losing a game.

Wareham Saxons v Ensbury Eagles

A great start to our division 5 campaign (now 'trading' as Wareham Saxons) with a 6-0 home win against Ensbury Eagles. The overall score was 60-16 so well done to all involved.
