You might think that Bowls fixtures would have been wrecked by the weather, but this is not a fair weather sport - and a number of crucial games have continued to be played.
A team of 8 players from Erdington Court were at home to the Northampton Express Club in the Bowls England 2 4's national competition. The Court, led by Rob Robinson from Four Oaks trailed for most of the match - but snatched a dramatic lead in the 20th end to win 38:37!
A team from Erdington Court had just completed its best ever run in the Warwickshire County Triples League. In the quarter finals, they lost by just 17:16 to Whitnash.
In the Birmingham Bowling Association's (BBA) Ivy League, the ladies of the Court's blue team managed to dodge the rain to win another stunning home victory - this time against Solihull Municipal 27:9.
Again in the BBA, the Court's Men's 'A' team led by Peter Yates from Sutton Coldfield took 4 point against Handsworth Wood scoring 30:27. The team has scored an aggregate 226 points vs 189 against.
In a week end fixture, the Court, led by acting Captain Roy Webster hosted a team from Thistle Bowling Club near Tamworth. The Court won 72:53. However Thistle have the opportunity to take their revenge in a few weeks time when they play host!
