Bowls: Metro Pairs 2019!

Metro Pairs Competition 2019


On Saturday the 8th of June, the Metro Pairs Competition was held at Ravenscourt Park Bowls Club. 16 of the Metro members turned up nice and early, to play or help, so the first round of games could start on time at 10 o’clock. It was nice to have 3 of our new bowlers taking part: Josie Wood, Yusuf Zeyrek and Vijay Parekh.

In the last week, two of the bowlers had to drop out, so Steve and John, two of the markers, took their places. This left us with only one marker Josie’s husband David, who marked one of the games in each round with the players in the other games having to mark their own games.

The club secretary Susan couldn’t be there this year, but Maureen with her daughter Lea made sure we were all well supplied with teas, coffees and soft drinks.

This year 12 players took part, meaning we had 6 pairs, so a Round-Robin format was used, which meant each pair had to play all the other 5 pairs. 15 games were played, 3 in each round, with most of them exciting close results.

At the end of the tournament, George with Gause were presented with the cup and vouchers for winning all 5 of their games. Josie with Steve were also presented with vouchers for coming second.

After the presentation, where lots of photos were taken, all went to the Wetherspoon pub for a meal and a drink, and had a jolly good evening.
