The inter-county match between Devon Ladies and Cornwall Ladies was hit by delays following the horrible crashes on the A30 last weekend 
The Ladies from Devon recorded a resounding win by 67 shots and it is a tribute to the green keepers that a club like Ottery, should be asked to host such a prestigious match. 
The men’s and the ladies fours at Ottery Bowls Club are progressing well in their respective competitions, with clubs defeated who have never in living memory been beaten by Ottery.  
The Exeter and District Over 60s competitions have restarted, but due to a shortened season, and the problems some clubs are experiencing in raising teams, promotion and demotion has been withheld for this season only. 
Although we are now nearly half way through the season, there is still time for new players to give the game a go. Friday night club nights would be the best time to try the game out, so please give the club secretary a call on 07772 134253 to book a coaching time.
