The Ladies' Outdoor Finals were spread over two days and both days saw some exceptional play.
Apart from the odd shower, the weather was fine, very windy on the first day but, on the whole, the bowling conditions were good, with players and spectators thoroughly enjoying the matches:
The Ladies' Championship was between Marie Wall and Anne Capon, and both players deserved to win the title with some outstanding shots, but Anne won through in the end with 21 shots to 16. A very exciting game!
Mary Price and Jill Bishop battled for the Mitchell Plate with Jill winning 21-17.
