The ladies were triumphant on two of the rinks and won a thrilling contest overall by a margin of one shot!

Last Wednesday afternoon Bridport played a three rink mixed friendly match at Sidmouth which saw the home side win on all three rinks and by 51 shots to 39.

There was some exceptional home bowling with the top performing rink being that of Ann Elwood, Mike Reader, Sylvia Cook and skip Ron Cook who won by 22 shots to 14.

On Thursday the Foxlands ladies played their fifth match in the league, this time against Axminster, winning on both home rinks and winning overall by 92 shots to 73 giving Sidmouth a further six points to see the side retain second place in the table.

The two home teams both won with Jan Jameson Bates, Elaine Reed, Zena Johnson and skip Chris Hamer securing a tremendous 29-8 success whilst the rink of Mary Smith, Paddy Chew, Sheila Lewis and skip Jane Painter were 23-17 victors.

Later in the day sixteen members of Sidmouth Bowling Club enjoyed their annual visit to the Torquay Leisure Hotel complex.
