Congratulations to Lee Croad and Mel Barrett who were the only team to finish with a rink win, 22-14.

The afternoon's Aussie Pairs Friendly was played in a relaxed and convivial way with Ringwood coming second by an overall score of 87 shots to 109 shots.

Many thanks to Paul for producing a wonderful green and also to those members who, with their efforts, made it possible to organise and run this event in these most difficult of times.


 

Yesterday, Ringwood had another fine win with victory over Downton by a total of 37 shots.

While the away rinks found it tough gong on very slow green, losing overall by 2 shots, the Home rinks had a convincing win by 39 shots.

So, it is on to the final against New Milton on Saturday 12th September at Ringwood. Start time 11.00am.


 

On Tuesday, Ringwood had another fine win with victory over Fordingbridge by 53 shots to 45.

The third round match will be against Downton next Tuesday 18th August at 6.00pm.

Last night, Ringwood got off to a fine start, negotiating their way through the 1st Round, with victory over Braeside by 57 shots to 42.

At Home, the rink score was 1 each in a close match that saw Ringwood run out victors by only 4 shots.

Away, both rinks were won with Ringwood taking the spoils by 11 shots.

The second round match will be against Fordinbridge, next Tuesday, 11th August at 6.00pm.


 

The return match turned out to be a very successful day for Ringwood.

Many thanks to all who took part with special thanks to the same few who worked so hard to make it possible. I won't name them, we all know who the same few always are. Many thanks again.
 
The weather was kind and the green was superb with special thanks Paul.
 
This time there were only two sessions of Pairs matches which Ringwood managed to win 12-8.
 
Lots of very good performances with too many to mention. However, I will point to two performances that stand out.
Derick & Den won one of there sets 19-0.
The outstanding performance of the day came from Anne Taylor & Brian Harrington (AKA Harry) who drew one set all against Boscombe's top man & top lady players.
 
Thanks again to all of you.
 
Kind Regards
Mike.
