BOWLS: Weeks retains Merriott singles championship
3:20pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
MERRIOTT Short Mat Bowls Club held their annual club championship which proved to be extremely competitive and entertaining for contestants and spectators alike. In the early rounds of both the singles and pairs competitions there were some very close games with interesting results and no one person being an obvious favourite. At the end of proceeding the pairs champions were Norman Sumpter and Mike Dandridge, with Margaret Rowswell and Hazel Howell runners up.
Last year’s singles champion, Anne Weeks, retained her title in a close contest against David Swanson.
Merriott are also back playing again in the Milford and Dormer Mixed Triples League at Chard.
So far they have experienced mixed fortunes. Merriott entertained Henhay and won 41-39 but last week lost the return 44-38.
Merriott also welcomed touring side West Chiltington of West Sussex.
The match, a very pleasant and friendly affair, was won by the home side and also gave some of Merriott’s Tuesday members a chance to experience a match for the first time.
Merriott play twice a week in the village hall – on Tuesdays from 1.45pm to 4.45pm and Wednesdays from 6.45pm to 10pm. New members are always welcome. For more details call 01460-73091.
