BIRMINGHAM DISTRICT WOMEN'S BOWLING ASSOCIATION - PRESIDENT'S GALA DAY

 

Long standing member Pat Court has had the honour of being President of the WDWBA this season.....

 

After a week of changeable weather the sun came out for us on Sunday. Bowlers from Blossomfield, Solihull, Rowheath. Sherwood Park and Handsworth Wood Bowling Clubs came together at our Club to help celebrate my Gala President’s Day of the Birmingham District Women’s Bowling Association for 2019. There was friendly competition between the mixed teams with one team, namely Ruth Acum, Mary Webster and Mo Tuckett coming in overall winners. There was a Cake Stall, Bring and Buy and raffle, followed by a fish and chip supper, with much jollity and friendship. An enjoyable day for all.

ERDINGTON COURT'S 'A' TEAM TOP THE LEAGUE FOR 4TH SUCCESSIVE YEAR

Posted by Ray Woods/Peter Yates on August 19, 2019 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (0)

The Court's 'A' team went into the final game at home to Sherwood Park's 'B' team - needing just 2 points to take the Birmingham Bowling Association's (BBA) top League for the 4th successive year.

 

On Rink 1, the squad led by Rob Robinson from Four Oaks began cautiously, but after picking up 7 points on one end, they gained traction to win 25:8.

 

On the other rink, the contest was much more even, but the Court led by Antony Gould (Sutton Coldfield) dug in to win 20:15, taking 3 points on the last end.

 

This meant that overall, the team took a fabulous 6 points! A great way to end the season and win the League.

 

The Court's 'B team were also at home - to Solihull Municipal. Tim Hartland's (Erdington) squad were 6-17 down after 13 ends, but fought back well to finish just 3 shots behind on 15-18.

 

Peter Yate's (Sutton Coldfield) squad were 4 shots down on the last end by the time he played his last bowl - but in a spectacular finale, his last wood got into the head and cut the visitor's score down to just 2 shots, giving the squad a 4 shot win at 18-14 and the 'B' team an overall win of 33-32 and a resulting 4 points!
