Bowls: Metro Pairs 2019!

Metro Pairs Competition 2019

METRO PAIRS BOWLS 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.

Weston-Super-Mare Bowls 2019

WESTON-SUPER-MARE BOWLS TOURNAMENT 2019

Last week seven Metro bowlers travelled down to Weston-super-Mare on the 1st of May to be ready for the start of the tournament on Thursday morning and returned home on Monday afternoon.

The tournament is split into two sections, one for the B1 bowlers, and the other for the partially sighted bowlers.  The B1 tournament was played as a Round Robin, which means each player has to play all the other players.  Eric Gallacher managed to win all his games so retained the Lions Cup which he won last year and was given the gold medal.

Keith Brenton from Gateshead received the silver and George Phillips from Metro got the bronze. In the open section, each player had to play twice a day for four days.  By the time the tournament finished, four players had won their 8 games.

Wales’ players won the gold and bronze medals, with Alison from Cornwall receiving the silver.  Our Metro bowler Gause also won all his 8 games but came fourth on shot difference.

Gail Hepworth won her first 7 games, then lost to Alison.  Wilbert Williams won 6 of his games.  Constance Onwuka won 5 of her games and Jackie Venus won 3 of her games.

All in all, Metro bowlers won a lot more games than they lost.  It was a lovely friendly tournament, and most of the bowlers have booked in again for next year’s tournament.
