Bowls County Finals Weekend

The Warwickshire Womens County Finals were held at Stratford upon Avon Bowling Club over the weekend of 31st July/1st August. With this being Mary Wheildon's Presidential Year we had the honour of being the host and received plaudits from everyone involved for what proved to be a very successful and enjoyable week-end. Family catering exceeded even their own high standards with the lunches and our club members ensured tea and cakes were served throughout the weekend with the proceeds going towards Marys Presidential Charity 'Mary's Meals'. There was also some real icing on the cake with Boat Club ladies excelling in the competitions. Mary herself skipped the triple that included Chris Hurst and Jacqui Ashley to victory over a Fenny Compton triple 17:10 in the final and Jacqui went on in the afternoon to win her second event of the day in the Warwickshire Unbadged Singles overpowering her opponent Sandra Payne from Leamington 22:8 with a dominant display. Everyone watching was also treated to an excellent performance in the under 25's Final by Ellie Hurst who did our club proud going head to head with her more experienced opponent Hannah Smith for the majority of the match with the score finishing 21:11 to Hannah Smith. Hannah and Ellie have agreed to pair up next season hoping to play together in the 2022 Nationals.
