Last Saturday Sidford Short Mat Bowling Club held its second annual tournament at Sidford Social Hall, writes Carol Beckett.

Eight teams from across East Devon took part; Newton Poppleford, Colyton, Woodbury, Sidbury, Beer, Broadclyst and two teams from Ottery St Mary.

The standard of bowling was very high with Colyton and Ottery St. Mary 2 coming out top of group one.

The group two winners were Sidbury and Ottery St Mary 1.

After the play off the teams making it through to the final were Colyton and Ottery St Mary 1.

Spectators were treated to a wonderful nail biting battle for the trophy with Colyton coming out on top, for the second year running.

The club would like to thank the following local businesses who donated to our raffle; The Salty Monk, Sidmouth Jewellers, Sidmouth Garden Centre, Lexy’s Hairdressers, Coastal Coffee Lounge, The Otter Inn, Southern Cross Guest House and Rolys Fudge.
