The Club recently held the Women and Men’s Championship Pairs with 6 women’s teams & 8 men’s teams. The format was 3 bowls, 18 ends or 1 ¾ hours, no time limit for the final/possible final. At the end of the 1st day’s play 2 women’s teams remained to go onto the 2nd day. Jean Huxtable, Evelyn Bradley 2 lives and 1 lifer Liz Muru, Lillian Wells.  The wind was even stronger which made bowling difficult. In the final/possible final Huxtable proved too good on the day winning comfortably to eliminate Muru and to take out 2019-20 Women’s Championship Pairs 21-11.
In the Men’s section 3 teams went through to the second day, Barry & Sam Allison (father & son combination) with 2 lives, and 1 lifers Alan Bright, Trevor Smith and Tupu Campbell, Selwyn Hargreaves who had a bye. In a one-sided match the Allisons’ eliminated Bright. In the final/possible final  V Tupu Campbell, Selwyn Hargreaves they did the same playing excellent bowls in both matches and deservedly took out the Men’s 2019-20 Championship Pairs . Thank you to the kitchen staff, raffle seller, greenkeeper and match controller. Once again it was great to see so many spectators on the 2nd day who would have seen some great bowls played.
On behalf of our members we wish everyone a great New Year and we will see you on the green in 2020
