Cards for the match at home against Bradninch not to hand.

For the most part the weather has been very kind to the ladies this week and there have been some excellent results.

The County Over-50s league was played at home against Heavitree and, of the two triple teams, Sidmouth won one of them, adding points to the league table.

The best rink was Christa Turner, Phyl Nobbs, Eileen Hewett 29-16 - a very good win.

l Sidmouth ladies were invited to send a team to Seaton where they were to play against other clubs in the region for the Perham Trophy.

What a team! Pat Pritchard, Sue Mison, Sheila Burnand and Jill Bishop proudly brought the trophy back to Sidmouth - many congratulation ladies!

l Friendly matches: the first match of the week was at Phear Park - three rinks of triples. It was a great success with all teams winning - Sue Mison, Pat Gomm, Eileen Stribling 18-12; Paddy Chew, Jean Mountford, Sheila Burnand 14-10; Zena Johnson, Mary Bristow, Phyl Nobbs 18-12.

The second match was against a touring team and Sidmouth ladies were pleased to welcome two teams from Cobham in Kent. A lovely time was had, despite a little rain which certainly did not put off the home teams. After an excellent cream tea Sidmouth ladies went on to win on both rinks - Jill Lewis, Dreda Taylor, Sheila Burnand, Anne Capon 36-12; Paddy Chew, Mary Smith, Eileen Stribling, Eileen Hewett 19-13.

The ladies are now looking forward to the coming few weeks leading up to the finals of the in-house competitions at the beginning of September.
