Those bowlers who managed to secure a place in the various finals matches eagerly awaited their games over a period of three days last week, writes Susie Bonnell.

The various matches all proved worthy of a classic final, all were closely matched, competitive and very well played.

Inevitably there were winners and losers - well no-one was a loser, maybe just a runner-up. One memorable game was the mixed pairs - played by Wilf Radburn and Jan Jameson Bates against Ken Wheeler and Ann Elwood.

It was a close tussle all the way through the 21 ends played, but in the end a win was secured by Wilf and Jan.

In the Turner Cup (the club championship), Jane Painter was the winner and Ken Wheeler the runner-up.
