Marlow Bowls Club had a good time and did very well on their recent trip to Warners at Bembridge, on the Isle of Wight.
The bowls competition attracted an entry of 36 teams from all around the country and three teams from the Marlow contingent reached the quarter finals.
These teams were;
Les Ford (Skip), Brian Jones, Mike Miller and Kath Spracklin (Desborough Indoor Club.
Doug (Skip) and Sheila Pounds, Ray Justice and Peter Burgess.
Robert Blake (Skip), Terry Anstead, Tony Cooper and Bob Coombs'
Unfortunately Kath Spracklin hurt her leg and did not play from the Quarter Finals on. Kath was replaced at lead by Cyril (aged 90) from the Bembridge Club. Cyril proved a great lead and a real asset for the remainder of the competition.
Robert Blake's team came through the quarter final but unfortunately lost in the semi-final.
Les Ford's team progressed to the final, winning it convincingly 17 – 1 to take the £1,500 1st prize.
Congratulations to them and all from Marlow who had an enjoyable week relaxing and bowling.
