Onchan Ladies’ Singles

There was a disappointing entry of 20 for the ladies’ singles open played at Onchan on Wednesday 13 May. The green was a bit on the heavy side, but it was nice to see the club back on their own green and the weather staying fair.

Quarter-finals: Maureen Payne 21, Tricia Bull 19; Chris Price 21, Mary Alderson 20; Ann Hollingworth 21, Mary Kinrade 18; Janet Monk 21, Shirley Whelan 15

Semi-finals: Chris Price 21, Maureen Payne 19; Janet Monk 21, Ann Hollingworth 11.

In the final there was some beautiful bowling. Janet won the first three ends to lead 10-6. Chris took five of the next seven ends, with Janet keeping her down to singles, to close to 11-13, but could only manage one more two before Janet ran out the winner 21-13.

The presentation was made by club president Lynda Clarke who congratulated all the ladies on the standard of bowls during the competition, before thanking all the Onchan ladies who had helped in any way during the afternoon.
