On Wednesday, we entertained our friends from Budleigh Salterton, who joined us for a ladies’ friendly match, writes Carol Smith.

Both Sidmouth rinks won very well with an overall score of 61- 20. Sandra Wheeler, Jean Green, Susie Bonnell and skip Carol Smith won 29 -9, which was a handsome success.

However, that was bettered by the rink of Pat Pritchard, Mary Turner, Elaine Reed and skip Eileen Hewett, who won by an even larger margin, securing a 36-11 success.

A few days later we took a mixed team to Budleigh and they certainly had their revenge, winning on both rinks with a score of 40-20. Well, it was Friday the 13th - say no more!

Well done, once again to our men, who have had another great win. This time they were up against Axminster in the Over-60s County Trophy (a county league game with two rinks playing home and two away) – their overall score being a massive 105-54.
