Erdington Court's A' Team finished the outdoor season of the Birmingham Bowling Association (BBA) by clinching the leadership of the top division - finishing just 2 points ahead of Sherwood Park, with the 'Club's B' team having already secured promotion to that same higher division.

 

Meanwhile, one of the Court's younger players and captain of their BBA 'B' team- Antony Gould from Sutton Coldfield has reached the BBA's 2 wood singles finals, and also leads a Club triples team in the same finals event.

 

The six rink all-weather green at the Court's Bowling Green Close home was full to capacity for the return friendly match against Handsworth Wood. Eight players on each rink meant that 48 players in total took part in this mammoth bowling event - with Handsworth Wood failing to end the Courts' two-year unbeaten home run. After a close first half, Erdington pulled away to finish winners - with a score of 136 to 53 shots.Winning Erdington Court rink with a score of +29 was: Andrew Menniss from Sutton Coldfield, Phil Johnson, Chris Reid and Tim Hartland - all from Erdington and Pype Hayes.

 

The annual outdoor Club men against ladies match ended with a win for the ladies - aided by some curious rules that some would say, were designed to aid the ladies!

It will be all-Suttonian contest and the winning teams going forward are:Team 1 - Geoff Bryant, Arthur Price and Pam Ellis,Team 2 - Dave Mitchell, Roy Webster and Michelle Blakey.
