Ballapaws Ladies’ Doubles
There was an entry of 19 pairs for the ladies’ doubles at Peel on Saturday 29 July, sponsored by Ballapaws boarding kennels.
The fine weather added to the occasion, and with the green running well, but not too fast, it was an afternoon of good bowls played in friendly fashion.
Quarter-finals: Lyn Bolton and Paula Garrett 21, Elaine Moore and Gill Dixon 15; Ann Hollingworth and Heike Perry 21, Debbie Leece and Alison Keggen 15; Sue Jones and Joyce Kelly 21, Ange Maddrell-Reeve and Jan West 16; Lynda Cadamy and Philippa Taylor 21, Margaret Tasker and Tricia Bull 13.
The semi-finals were well-fought and perhaps a little closer than the scores might suggest.
Semi-finals: Lyn Bolton and Paula Garrett 21, Ann Hollingworth and Heike Perry 14; Lynda Cadamy and Philippa Taylor 21, Sue Jones and Joyce Kelly 15.
The final started in cagey fashion with honours shared over the first ten ends, at which point the scores were level at 12-12. However at this point Lyn and Paula refused to let Philippa and Lynda have another turn of the jack, coming through to win 21-12.
Club president, Heather Horsburgh, thanked all those who had entered, and those who had helped with the smooth running of the afternoon, before introducing Chris Owen, of Ballapaws Boarding Kennels, who had generously sponsored the event and provided the new trophy, to present the prizes.
