Ringwood Bowling Club

A friendly club on the fringe of the New Forest, close to Bournemouth

At last, Fred Alderman had his operation earlier in the week and came out of hospital on Wednesday. It all went well and Jan Gould is looking after him during his recuperation and hopefully it won't be too long before he is back to full working order. We all wish Fred a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him on a rink soon.

On Wednesday Debbie Senior and Chris Dalrymple won their County Pairs match against D.Halse and S.Leake of Lymington, at Lymington, 26-13. Well Done.

Unfortunately, Derick Faulkner and Brian Tanner lost their tight County Pairs match against Roy Richardson of Lymington 22-23.

Well done to Derrick Fulker and Mel Jones who won their County Pairs match against Mark Howard at Argyll. Score was 16-23.

Congratulations also to Lee Croad who defeated Chris Cieciura of Pelhams 21-20 in his County 4-Wood Singles Match.

On Friday, Pete Ward won his County Singles match against John Sanderson of Southbourne, 17-8. He also played with Lee Croad, Helen Blackiston and Sharon Varndell in the National Mixed Fours against John Watts of Pelhams. The result was another win for Ringwood, 26-8. Well Done to all.

Today, Margery Gardner and Chris Dalrymple unfortunately lost their Cooley Goblets match in the morning. In the afternoon we trotted off from sunny Ringwood to a rain drenched Verwood for a friendly match. The rain delayed four rinks of triples match was played over 15 ends on what turned out to be a very pleasant afternoon. Ringwood won the match 33-55 with two winning rinks, one drawn and one lost. A good afternoon was had by all.
