Beachcombers rise to top
Sidmouth men entertained near neighbours Budleigh Salterton. This is always a friendly but keenly contested match and on this occasion Budleigh came out the winners by 65-56, despite Sidmouth winning two of the three rinks, write Peter and Sue Mison.
Best rink was Maurice Watson, Harry Carpenter, Tony Holland and Bob Seldon who won by 24-18.
On Saturday, the men played their first round of the County Trophy competition against the holders Exonia on a two rinks at home, two rinks away basis.
It was very exciting for Sidmouth playing against such top flight players. Exonia won comfortably but, nevertheless, it was a match that was much enjoyed.
Congratulations to Ronnie Cook who won his quarter final in the Over 60s National Singles (Devon County section) beating Trevor Pipe from Honiton by 21-9.
