On Sunday, April 23, Merrow Village Bowls Club travelled to Liphook for their first match of the 2017-18 season. We were blessed with a reasonably fine day, some even had to remove their jackets and jumpers because of the warmth!

The match was close-fought, with each of the four rinks frequently changing leaders. Eventually, Merrow managed to break through to win by eight points overall, also winning on three of the four rinks.

The match was a very friendly affair, with plenty of banter among the players. Merrow were pleased to welcome a new member, Nick, who played extremely well.

Following the match, Liphook provided a welcome tea, with delicious home-made cakes. We look forward to entertaining Liphook at Merrow on August 5.

On Saturday April 29, Merrow travelled to the Pippbrook Bowls Club in Dorking.

Although the afternoon was overcast to begin with, and a trifle chilly, the sun did make an appearance eventually, warming everyone up.

We played four rinks of triples, with one Merrow rink reduced to just two players due to a late cancellation by one of our members. However, that just seemed to spur Rodney and Colin on, as they won their rink by a convincing margin.

The overall result was a points win for Merrow, 69-56. The teams were evenly matched though with each team winning on two rinks.

Special thanks went to Rita and Brian, who laid on a lovely tea for the hungry bowlers.

We look forward to the return match with Pippbrook at Merrow on May 20.
