North Cambs had a fantastic week at the 2011 EBF & EWBF National Outdoor Finals at Skegness, returning with a champion block in the Women’s 3 wood triples of June Warren, Debra Wright and Margaret Hunt who played four winning games.
North Cambs Ladies president Anne Halsey partnered by Janet Anderson also reached the final of the Women’s Pairs but could not maintain their previous form and lost to Humberside.
The Championship started badly, losing six straight games in the rain on the first morning, then four wins in the dry in the afternoon. The weather alternated between sun, rain, hail, and a thunderstorm on Saturday, but North Cambs kept winning more games than they lost, ending with six losing and one winning semi-final and a winning final on the Friday.
Presidents Paul Bennett and Anne Halsey are very proud of the performance achieved by the players during the week resulting in eight semi-finalists, two finalists and a championship team.
