COVID-19 has not prevented Cowes Medina Bowling Club enjoying a successful rearranged season of triples leagues, inter-club games and roll-ups.

It was an exciting time down the green on Saturday 26th September with the culmination of the 3 club competitions organised this season.

In the Open Pairs, Rog Payne and Craig Wilson-Smith took an early lead but Rob Poynter and Pat Marshall stayed in there and fought back bravely towards the end. However, Rog and Craig eventually won to claim the winners’ trophy 22-13.

In the Ladies’ Singles, Sharon Hartill and Jacqui Morris were in a repeat of last year’s final and, once again, Sharon proved to be too strong and won the competition for the second year in a row 21-7.

Meanwhile, in the Men’s Singles, Steve Lewis played against Brian Knowles and soon found the line and length, no matter where the jack was put, and proved to be the stronger and more consistent to win in the end 21-9.

Thanks were given by the club’s President Alan Mabey to everyone who came to watch and to give their support on the day and their time to organise and run the competitions.

A number of new bowlers were welcomed to the club with those members trying out the game for the first time.

The club will end the season with a Presidents Day on Saturday 10th October and a series of men vs ladies matches. More information can be found at http://cowesmedinabowlingclub.com.
