OVER 100 BOWLERS TURN OUT

15TH AUGUST 2018

 

The 3 week summer season of evening bowls came to a successful conclusion on Wednesday 15th August with a hotly contested match between the ladies and men. All was not as it seemed, however, because on three of the ends the men had to endure an additional challenge.

 

On end 3 they had to bowl left-handed, on end 6 they had to deliver the bowl between their legs facing away from the jack and on end 9 the lady skip delivered the jack after all bowls had been delivered. This made for some pretty tricky bowling but plenty of laughs particularly from the ladies. In the event the ladies didn't need any help as they trounced the men by 78 shots to 58.

 

The winning ladies rink with 17 shots up was Pam Ellis, Denise Szostek, Jean Whitney and Eileen Merrick. The winning men's rink with 9 shots up was Philip Watts, Dave Ballantyne and Ken Ellis.

 

The evening bowls season, comprising different types of competition on each of the three evenings, has been running for three years and is now firmly fixed in the Erdington Court outdoor bowling calendar. This year it attracted a record entry of nearly 100 bowlers over the 3 weeks. The social side to the games proved very popular and all participants enjoyed a light supper and chat after the game when the prize winners were announced. Needless to say the bar was open to help celebrate success or drown sorrows - and there were plenty of takers in both camps.
