The singles club championships are the two most prestigious club competitions. Lots of entries as you would expect but the standout round was the Ladies semi-final between the 3 times Ladies champion Judy Abel against Gill Young. What a match! The end result was after 33 ends Judy won by 1 shot 21-20. Brilliant bowling.

Judy was to meet Sylvia Byrne who had been in the final of this competition before. Sadly due to very high winds on finals day the bowling did not match the event and Sylvia really struggled and only won 2 ends to lose 21-3.

The Gent's final was held at the same time and was between brothers-in-laws namely Denis Stoyles and a new member to the club John Wilson. Again the same very blustery conditions was not conducive to bowling but Denis although starting off the poorer regained his momentum and went on to win 21-14.

Sadly the weather spoiled what should have been a great finals day but not to distract from the finalists who all put up a great show under very trying conditions. Many congratulations to Denis and Judy (who has now won this competition for the 4th time) and Denis who has won this for the 1st time but should have won it years ago. Commiserations to John and Sylvia who will live to fight another day.
