Saturday 17th February – Middlesex League v The Lawns

The Club team is out again this Saturday in our next Middlesex League match and we’re hoping for a win this time!

10:00 at the Club or at The Lawns – 2 rinks home, 2 away.  Mixed – it used to be men only so we girls are very happy to be included!

The rinks are getting filled up as the next deadline for the Club Competitions looms.

Well done to Andy H who had a real battle with Peter J in the Middlesex Singles (not Club Championships as previously reported).  A tight game and two brave chaps who each ditched the jack to take the end – Peter to keep in the game and then Andy to finally secure the match.  When the target is small, you have to feel confident to play that sort of shot especially if the jack is 4 yards from the ditch!

On Rink 4 Peter C & Teresa were fighting it out against Ann B & Dave B in the Drawn Mixed Pairs.  Good shots by all four players, but Peter C seemed to settle in well getting bowls nearer the jack than Dave’s and Teresa tidying up, despite Ann’s best efforts.  All four played well.  Some days it goes  your way, some days it doesn’t!

It didn’t go our way in the National Over 50’s Triples with Di, Dawn & Ann H going down to Isobel, Barbara & Ann R from Egham.  Whatever we did, one of the opposition had a better bowl.  Barbara had never played at CP before but she was on it every end.  A bit galling when the opposition find the green and the home team don’t!  All three Egham girls played really well and deserved their win,  Good luck to them in the next round.
