On the 28th April saw a good turnout for the Mixed Bowls Singles Championship, to be decided by a knock-out system of games each consisting of seven ends. An excellent series of games developed with the women coming out on top. The final turned out to be an outstanding game with some great bowling and a score of 4-4 going into the last end. It was finally won by Rosemary Haddon over Jean Culling by the score of 6-4. The Norman and Viv Browne Trophy for the highest score in one match was won by Sandy Davies with a magnificent score of 18. This is our last competition until September so time to enjoy the friendly summer games.
The ‘WARDINGTON LEAGUE’ has now ended with Nether Heyford indoor bowls team finishing a very respectable second. We were presented with a cup for runners up at the end of the season closing competition at Moreton Pinkney. £800 was raised for charity over the season’s games and distributed between four worthy charities.
