La Posada Club Championships

May 2018 - La Posada BC

Postponed from March due to bad weather, and with the Menís Singles having been played in February, the remaining events took place over 5 days from 22nd to 26th April.

NOVICE SINGLES, an event open only to members who have not previously won a Club singles competition, was won by last yearís runner-up Nigel Snaith, who beat Phil Walker in the final 21-14.

LADIES PAIRS: after a round robin stage, Margaret Baxter and Shelley Greenwood took on Maureen Fewings and Julie Banfield in the final.  With the scores level at the halfway stage, the more experienced pair of Maureen and Julie started to pull ahead and went on to win by 22-10.

MENíS PAIRS: Novice Singles winner, Nigel Snaith, teamed up with Club Captain Georg Hamblin and they reached the final after a close semi final win by just 1 shot against Colin Lamb and Dave Way. Their opponents in the final were Ted Holmes and Jeff Rowe, who themselves had knocked out defending champions, Nick Cummins and Allen Gateshill in their semi final. Nigel and Georg made a great start, leading 10-2 after only 3 ends. Ted and Jeff made a game of it though, getting the deficit down to just 5 shots at 17-12 down with 5 ends left.  However, that was as close as they got with Nigel and Georg going on to win by 23-13.

MIXED PAIRS: With fairly comfortable wins for both finalists in each of their quarter and semi final matches, defending champions, Maureen Fewings and Georg Hamblin, met Julie Banfield and Jeff Rowe in the final. It turned out to be a great match, with some top class bowling from all 4 players. With Julie and Jeff taking a small lead early on, It was nip and tuck all the way but Julie and Jeff managed to just keep their noses in front for the duration of the match, going on to win by 15-11.
