BILLERICAY V FAIRWOOD    TOP CLUB MATCH   14TH MAY 2022

The weather was perfect , our supporters confident and the atmosphere was right for our first Ladies' match.

We started the match with high hopes but soon realised we we up against a skilled

opposition. Everyone played their best on the day but we were beaten on 3 of the four rinks.

However even the opposing Ladies' captain admitted the scores did not reflect the quality of our play.

We did however offer a splendid lunch thanks to those who provided the food and to Edith and Sandra 

who did did a champion job setting it all out.

We also have to thank Siobhan and Tony B for being our 'Tea Ladies'  who were only at the club for a practise session!

Singles: Val lost 17-22

Pairs : Michelle, Lynn lost 13-26

Triples: Gill, Carol, Pam lost 7-26

Rinks: Jean, Catherine, Christine, Jenny WON 16-13

Ladies' Senior 4's

Michelle, Gill, Jean & Lynn were drawn against the team from Springhouse. While they had beaten us in the pairs, Jean had secured a singles victory earlier on against their lead so confidence was bubbling. 

However they took an early lead and we were unable to match the skill of their number 3 who on several occasions turned a 3 shot lead for us into a one shot defeat. Very disheartening but we fought to the bitter end hoping to make double figures but the result was 9-28.

There will be next year ladies.

Ladies' Championship Triples

Michelle , Gill and Lynn  were drawn against a strong team from Stock.  Despite a concentrated effort from our players we were comprehensively defeated 7-23. Thanks to Gill for standing in for Jean who was unfit to play due the dreaded aftermath of Covid.  Senior Fours here we come !

Ladies' Unbadged Pairs 2nd Round

Michelle and Lynn were drawn against  2 ladies from Runwell. Despite leading at the 11th end they were beaten 17-20 . However a small consolation was that they won  12 of the 21 ends

Ladies' Pairs- Basildon and District competition

Michelle and Lynn were drawn against a Springhouse ladies' pairs who both have bowled for Essex county.

Enthusiasm was higher than optimism but to our surprise we were only narrowly beaten 21-24 on points but actually won 11-10 on ends.

Ladies' Unbadged Pairs

Michelle and Lynn were drawn once again against the ladies from Corringham and Fobbing. Having been beaten last year they got revenge and won 23-13.  They meet the ladies from Runwell in the second round.
