You’ll never guess what – Southwick Park won the Brighton ladies league!
We were bound to win it really as both the teams in the final were from Southwick Park!!
Fun game to watch with some brilliant bowling on display and played in the spirit you would expect.
I am so proud of all our lady players in the club, we have great strength in depth as the football pundits would say. This is the 3rd year in 4 that we have taken this title
Captain Colin is pictured picking up the Adur League Shield last night after a thrilling final evening that saw Southwick Park take maximum points from Lancing.
With that win and the 14 points that went with it we leapt over Southwick (who looked certain to win this year with their 8 point lead) to achieve a total of 58 taking the title by just 3 points.
Proof if it were needed that it’s never over until the last rink has finished playing. Congratulations to all who played in or supported us in any of the Adur League matches this season. A great win for the club.
Our prowess on the green was only enhanced by the last match catering laid on by Lynn, Colin and helpers.
Our annual Fours tournament took place on Sunday, 12th August. Despite the adverse weather forecast we were able to play most of the games in the dry.
32 players took part so we were able to have 2 Divisions of 4 teams. The winners of each division played in the final.
The worthy winners were Cathy Kuhler, Roy Whittingham, Jackie Ward and Clive Marchant. Runners up were Chris Edwards, Chris Farrell, Colin Mardell and Denis Miles.
Well done to you all!
The whole day was played in a very friendly atmosphere and it was lovely that everyone stayed to cheer on the finalists.
Southwick Park Bowling Club held their Triples Day on Sunday 24th June. A beautiful sunny day was enjoyed by about forty members, with eleven teams competing throughout the day in two Divisions. The winners of each Division then played in a well fought final. The eventual winners were Clinton Peck, Chris Farrell and Clive Marchant, the Runners Up being Gill Evans, John Kuhler and John Grice.
