Eleven players from Walpole Highway Short Mat Bowls Club visited Bodelwyddan Castle, north Wales, last week for a tournament held over five days.
They had mixed results against 90 other players from around the country. Tony Kent made it through to the semi-finals of the two wood singles, before getting beaten. Margaret Rea, Dawn and Roly Fincham were the only players from Walpole to make progress in the triples, they unfortunately lost to a measure on the last end in the last 16.
In the main competition of the week two pairs made it through to the final on Friday morning. Kent and Gerry Russell overcame a strong pair of Dawn and Roly Fincham on the last end of the ten ends played.
