Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
Well done to all those who played in the Nationals, I was very proud of Warwickshire and honoured to present you all for your badges. Congratulations also to the County Men on winning the Double Rink Balcomb Trophy, that was quite some achievement - Well Done!!
President's Day at Southam went very well and for once it didn’t rain, thank you to all who donated to my charity “Ups of Downs” we raised over £900 pounds on the day. I would also like to thank my club Southam for all their hard work on the day and also all season, they have been amazing.
I can’t believe we are nearing the end of the season, I have had a wonderful year as your President, lots of laughs and fun and excellent bowling, thank you all.
Beaten by Bedfordshire
The final inter-county game of the season took place at Rugby Thornfield BC against Bedfordshire and in spite of an excellent season, Warwickshire ladies were unable to retain their winning streak finishing 76-103.
Highest winning rink went to Maureen Edwards with Sigrid Thomas, Yvonne Bromfield (all Rugby Thornfield) and Thelma Orberson (Avenue Coventry) who started slowly but 4 shots on the 7th end changed the perspective and they went on to win 18-6.
Debbie Bloxham (Stratford) with Velisa Brown (Southam), Abbie Ward (Avenue Leamington) and Joy Cooke (Blossomfield) started well and never looked in any danger as they went on to win 15-10.
Gill Maund (Sherwood Park) with Janet Miller (Grange Ladies), Denise Judge (Bilton) and Aleen Shuttleworth (Stoke) struggled to start but 3 shots on the 8th end gave them the inspiration they needed to go ahead and despite a last few ends flourish from the opposition they managed to hold on and with 19-15.
So with three winning rinks and three losing one could say it was a draw but Bedfordshire probably wouldn’t agree.
County President, Chris Cooke, had the pleasure of presenting Blazer Badges to Cynthia Briggs (RLS) and Abbie Ward (Avenue Leamington)
