Sidmouth ladies recorded a famous success last Sunday when they played in the new Top Club Lacemakers competition, writes Stephen Birley.

The team comprised of eleven players to contest five disciplines in the meeting with Exeter based opposition Exonia.

The contest is played on a home and away basis and, on this occasion the two-wood singles, the pairs and the fours were played at Sidmouth and the four-wood singles and the triples were played at Exonia.

Sidmouth rose splendidly to the challenge winning three of the five disciplines thus qualifying for the semi-finals to be played at Honiton on March 8.

Ann Capon was victorious in her two-wood singles contest landing a 17-7 shot.

Jill Bishops excelled in the four-wood singles securing a 21-16 victory and Paddy Chew and Zena Johnson combined to secure success in the pairs with a 33-18 win.
