On Thursday three rinks of ladies’ travelled to Axminster fro a friendly encounter and enjoyed success on two of the rinks and overall by 65 shots to 40.

The best performing rink was that of Pat Ashton-Pritchard, Susie Bonnell, Jenny Fricker and skip Elaine Reed, the latter warranting special praise as this was her maiden match as the skip!

The top Sidmouth rink was that of Wilf Radburn, Chris Radburn, Sylvia Cook and skip Ron Cook who won by 30 shots to 21.

Well done, to the winning rink of Lorna Lever, Christa Turner, Ann Capon and skip Jill Bishop who landed a 34-6 success.
