Successful tournament week for bowling club

bowlsTHE annual tournament at Lyme Regis Bowling Club was its usual successful week, attracting bowlers from far and wide who love playing on the Lyme green, providing a boost to the local economy outside the main season.

The start of the week was more like winter but, by the end of the week it was high summer. Roger Woolland, of Seaton Bowls Club, was the main beneficiary of the week, winning both the men’s singles and with his partner, Shirley Fewtrell, the pairs title as well, having won both titles previously.

Men’s Singles:
Roger Woolland, Seaton, 21; Steve Pomeroy, Lyme Regis, 12. This was a close game to begin with, but Roger prevailed with long jack lengths to end up a comfortable winner.

Ladie’s Singles:
Jenny Andrews,Blandford’, 22; Karen Hofen, Greenhill, 16. At 16-all this was anyone’s title, but Jenny eased ahead denying Karen another shot.

Open Pairs:
Roger Woolland, Seaton, and Shirley Fewtrell, Ottery St Mary, 27; Richard Cridge and Alan Nabarro, Lyme Regis, 12. This game was better than the score would suggest, with Richard and Alan putting up a spirited fight.

Open Triples:
Carl Stephens, John Beadsley, Lyme Regis’, and George Doig,  Hyde Abbey, 17; Jan Fracz, Lorraine and John Dunsford, Canford, 16. Nail- biting stuff this one, at 16 all going into the last end, this really was anyones game to win.
