Two married couples ran out winners in our bowling club’s opening event on Sunday 2nd May. In the drawn pairs knockout competition Richard Sykes and Peter Schofield defeated Joanna Birch and Tom Littlewood in the final of the main competition. Their wives, Catherine and Kate won the Plate event beating Mark Wallis and Kathryn Parlar in their final.
Richard had been partnered by Mary Hirst in the first two rounds but when she had to withdraw competition organiser Peter, who had not originally entered in order to supervise the matches, took her place in the semi- final and final.
The green was in first class condition and the bowlers had a very enjoyable afternoon. At the end of the competition bowling club chairman Brian Stephenson congratulated the winners and thanked Peter for his excellent organisation.
