On Monday night, Tina & Cathy won their O55’s Middlesex Ladies Pairs v girls from Bishop Duppas by 32-10; Sarah & Jean, who kindly came in for Lucy while she is still recuparating Beat Marion & Carole from Ashfor by 19-12. Teresa should be playing Ann Bamber in this competition as well, but I haven’t heard the scores yet.
Elsewhere, Dawn & Paul Cater had a slow start but good win v Janine & Vikesh from Brentham in the National Mixed Pairs. Scoring a 6 on the 16th end was definitely a big help as we had been behind the whole match. The next round will be against Tina & Ashley.
For the Ladies, our next outing is the Top Club at Brentham on Saturday morning. The Brentham green is fast. We were playing at 90 degrees to the club house and with a normal one-swingy/one straigther side there was an added complication that on the even ends, the pace of the green was one yard slower. For long jacks, I think chewing gum might be needed to keep the bowls on the green. Needless to say, we didn’t play long jacks!
