Weekend Results

This past weekend saw several games of bowls enjoyed in great weather on our still fabulous-looking green.  Sufficient sunshine and rain over the past few weeks since pennant was completed, has meant that we are continuing to be able to take advantage of our green for many intra-Club events.  These have been well-attended by competitors and spectators, adding to the fun atmosphere we always encourage at Malvern Bowls Club . . . . except during pennant, when we are deadly serious 😉

On Saturday, the Hocking Stuart Triples competition was played, with a comfortable win to the team of Gerald Meuli, Graeme Lee and Deb Hurford.

On Sunday, the club’s newer players gathered to play the Novices Championship and after excellent bowling from everyone, Anita D’Andrea and Gerald Meuli played off in the final, with Gerald emerging victorious.

Also on Sunday, the Men’s Pairs winners (Graeme Lee and Barry O’Sullivan) played for bragging rights against the Ladies’ Pairs winners (Suzanne Gibbs and Andy Barraclough).  With one end resulting in an eight point win to the men, they suddenly overtook the ladies and point-by-point the rest of the game was hard-fought. Suzanne unfortunately retired early due to illness, with Deb Hurford taking her place.  The men ultimately won, with a score of 22-15.  It was wonderful to have so many spectators cheering the players on, as this always makes a more enjoyable game.

Special thanks must go to Michael Classon for organising the weekend’s events and to the markers who gave up their Sunday to assist the players – without your assistance the games would have stretched into the evening.  Thank you!

Hearty congratulations to all of the weekend winners!  Well done to you all!
