Mixed results so far this weekend.
Alas, our chaps didn’t beat Egham in the L&SC Challenge Shield on Friday night but they did come a lot closer than in previous encounters. There was a good win on Steve G’s rink and Kevin’s were only 3 shots behind at the end having had a neck-and-neck game right from the start. We did concede after 18 ends as the gap was too big to keep going. Another bit of experience gained and there’s nothing wrong with that!
On the next door rink, the three T’s were having a close match v Sarah, Lucy & Dawn but dropping a 3 on the 16th end didn’t help and Tina, Tricia & Teresa went through to the next round of the National Over 50’s Triples.
On Saturday morning, there was a good win for Laurence, Mike C & Peter T against an Over 50’s Men’s Triples away at Egham. Well done, lads!
On Saturday afternoon, the club had a win over Chertsey in the mixed friendly. We hope we can repeat the performance v King George Field this afternoon. Good to see Reg H enjoying a pint and catching up with everyone.
This morning (Sunday 16th), Ange & Ian D will be taking on Ray & Rhoda from Bounds Green in the L&SC Mixed Pairs. Play starts at 10.00 am so good luck to them and supporters will be welcome!
I haven’t managed to catch up with all the World Bowls yet. I knew there were ‘pool’ bowls in red and green in assorted sizes and designs (if that’s the right word). From what I’ve seen of Katherine Rednall, she has been playing some outstanding bowls so it was interesting to know that she was playing size 4, yes, size FOUR, pool bowls. Just shows how good her technique is if she can hold and control that size when she has small hands.
