IOM Ladies’ Association Triples


Port Erin was the venue for the IOM Ladies’ Association Triples played on Sunday 29 June. On a warm afternoon sixteen teams contested for the title on a very tricky green, when most of the games provided very close encounters.

Semi-finals: Janet Monk, Lilian Slinger and Helen Martin 21, Ann Hollingworth, Hilary Kermode and Hannah Kermode 10

Elaine Moore, Jill Quayle and Heather Horsburgh 21, Jenny Moore, Shelley Kennish and Fiona Kennish 17

The final was closely contested, the early exchanges leaving the score level at 14-14 after nine ends, at which point the Mooragh combo scored a 5 taking them to 19. However the South Ramsey/ Peel Sunset coalition were not going to give up easily and took the next four ends to take the lead 20-19, but were unable to take the next end which gave the match to Lilian, Janet and Helen 21-20.

The presentation was made by Association president, Pat Robertson, who thanked Port Erin for the use of their green and facilities, and everyone who had helped with the smooth running of the event.
