Spring Triples in November?
That’s what Covid has done to our normal routines, as November became the “new” spring” at Javea Green Bowls Club. This popular competition, sponsored by Select Villas of Moraira, had to be moved to this week but it did not detract from the quality of the bowling or the Member’s enjoyment.This “round robin” event saw the top teams go forwards to the semi finals and final, with the runners up going into a “Plate” competition. In the main competition Brenda Burgess, Lynne and Derek Eldon (Whatever), were defending their title and they won every Group match and then won a very keenly contested semi final against Trefor Evans, Vee Wood and Dave Dickinson (Tidy Like). The final saw them pitted against Steve Upton, Keith and Dee Hamilton (Captains Lot), but after taking control early on, they kept up the pressure and were able to retain the title in style. The Plate Competition was won by Tony Walker, Jan and Alan Phillips (Scorpions) who held off the challenge of Derek Shaw, Phil Woodhead and George Casson (Wizzards). We were delighted that Dawn Williamson of Select Villas of Moraira, was able to be in attendance to present the prizes and the Trophy. Alan Phillips, our Competition organiser, thanked our Members for entering the Spring Triples and in particular our newer Members who are showing great potential. Derek Eldon then thanked our sponsors for their valued support and Jan and Alan for organising another successful and enjoyable competition.
