It was a narrow loss to Ember on Sunday 3rd July by a mere 3 shots. Good green, great banter and lovely tea!
However, there was a 3-1 win to Cambridge Park in the TV Triples League v Masonians with the away teams both having convincing wins while the home teams had much tighter games. It was good to play bowls without fleeces and waterproofs for a change!
In the Middlesex Championships, Ann H, Jean S, Nadine & Cathy T are through to the finals which guarantees them a place in the Nationals at Leamington Spa in August. Alas, Ann, Jean & Cathy were beaten in the quarter finals of the Triples.
Ann & Jean are in the Regional Final of the National Senior Pairs having beaten another CP team of Dawn & Tricia in a well fought match. Ann & Jean play Pam & Renee from West Ealing on Thursday 14th July at 2.00 pm at the Club. This will be a very good match so worthy of spectators. The winners will go on to represent Middlesex at the Nationals.
Dawn is playing the Regional Semi-final of the National Senior Singles v Kay from Hurlingham Park at HP on Thursday 7th July. Rumour has it that the HP lawnmower had been stolen and the green not cut for a fortnight. I hope the rumour is unfounded or that a lawnmower has been purchased and the green cut – we’ve had a lot of rain and sun in the last couple of weeks and playing in a meadow is not appealing!
Dawn is also through to the quarter finals of the Middlesex Singles. This will be held alongside the quarters and semi-finals of the Unbadged Singles Championships at Fordbridge BC on Sunday 10th July with play from 10.30 am.
Former indoor ladies captain, Kerry Payne, is through to the quarter finals of the Middlesex Unbadged Singles. Good luck, Kerry!
