Phew! It’s been a hot one! Sidmouth Bowling Club rinks have been pushed to stay green this week, but thanks to underground water storage tanks and the extremely hard work of Barry and Noel - the green keepers - everything is looking as beautiful as ever, writes Susie Bonnell.

Despite no visiting touring teams, it was still a busy time for bowlers, playing in leagues, club competitions and county competitions.

Last Thursday, the Sidmouth ladies travelled to Torquay to play another round of the National Top Club.

Sadly, Torquay ladies proved to be the stronger team on the day and Sidmouth were knocked out of the competition.

Earlier this week, on Monday, the ladies played at home in the Exeter-Over 50s League.
