Castle Green Bowling Club

By Colin Summerhayes

Castle Green Bowling Club’s season began well with a fun evening for club members on Saturday April 29, ending in the clubhouse with a welcome hot cup of tea to warm those frozen fingers!

On Sunday afternoon, April 30, Castle Green was at home to Ewhurst BC. It was a tight game, with Castle Green winning on two rinks and drawing on a third rink.

Unfortunately, we got hammered on the fourth rink, so the eventual result was a win to Ewhurst by 6 points, 69 to 63.

Happily for us all, the promised rain mostly stayed away or drizzled on us for a few minutes here and there. On the whole it was quite a pleasant spring afternoon.

Results were:
Colin Summerhayes (skip), Brian West, Sue Secrett: 24-14
Patrick Andrew (skip), Lynn Smith, Diana Summerhayes: 18-17
John Reeves (skip), Nick Hinde, Lawrie Briggs: 15-15
Shirley West (skip), John Phillips, Julie Hinde: 6-23

On Tuesday afternoon May 2, Castle Green’s senior men’s team lost by 11 points to the team from Merrow, playing at home by the Castle: Castle Green 25; Merrow 36.

Individual team results:
Rob Williams (skip), John Reeves, John Phillips: CGBC 10 & Merrow  24
Colin Summerhayes (skip), Paul Plummer, Brian West: CGBC 15 & Merrow 12

On Saturday afternoon, May 6, Castle Green lost in a friendly against Pippbrook, away, by 20 points: 59 to79.

Mostly it was a very close game with a draw on one rink, two rinks losing by 2 and 4, but one rink way down at 13-27. Never mind, we all had fun in little bits of sun, though the afternoon did cool down as the day wore on.

Individual team results:
Patrick Andrew (skip), Lynn Smith, Tim Sampson: 13-15 (CGBC were ahead at end 17)
Shirley West (skip), Nick Hinde, Sue Secrett: 13-17 (CGBC were one point adrift at end 17)
Brian West (skip), Diana Summerhayes, Julie Hinde: 13-27
Colin Summerhayes (skip), John Reeves, Joan Walter: 20-20.

Merrow Village Bowls Club

By David Raison

On Sunday, May 7, Merrow Village Bowls Club opened their doors to anyone who wanted to find out more about bowls.

The open day at Merrow Village Bowls Club on Sunday, May 7.

A chilly morning meant that only a hardy few visitors arrived, but a lovely afternoon saw a turnaround with a number of visitors.

The day was a success and credit must go to those club members who gave up their time to help.

We look forward to welcoming the new bowlers into our club.
