Australian Pairs

The successful summer friendly games, continued on Sunday 20th May, with an Australian Pairs competiton. The games were played across 7 mats with 27 pairs taking part. Each pair played 4 games of  6 ends each, and scored 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. The pairs with the highest point scores after four games were declared the winners.

Everyone agreed that it was a great competition, played in good spirits with a lot of friendly banter  and the quality of the bowling was first class.

The sucessful pairs on the day were:

1st place: Irene Roberts and Malcolm Richards with maximum 12 points and 53 shots

2nd place: Arnie Jaffe and Paul Knight with maximum 12 points and 43 shots

3rd place: Jeanette and Tony Gayler with maximum 12 points and 25 shots

4th place: Audrey and Brian Fowler with 10 points and 33 shots

During the summer,  we continue to bowl with a series of fun and friendly games organised for the benefit of all registered members.

We are also invited to take part in similar events organised by Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire Associations, and they in turn are invited to ours.

This means that we can enjoy some competitive bowling with an element of fun, and the chance to win some prizes.

If you are a registered member of any of the above Associations, and would like to take part in these events, just contact your local Association secretary for full details or send us an email on  shortmat.bucks@tiscali.co.uk.

A list of some of these games can be found on the Diary 2018-19 page.

We will try and keep you up to date with all of these events and hopefully maintain your interest with some pictures as we go along.

Meanwhile, we would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our website and we hope you will continue to support the team of willing volunteers who keep all the County Associations running.
