Mixed Pairs Championship 2024

The alignment round began in near perfect conditions with a light sea breeze and B green running at a good pace for the 9am start.

Both games were close with the Wendy Saul and Murray Hulbert combination winning 15-11 over Sandy Everest and Jim Spencer. Anne Sauerwein and Matt Sharrett finally saw off a fast finishing Shona and Steve Buckley 12-11.

It was the opposite in the semi finals with Lee Leach and Ronnie Rogers proving too strong for Liz Marshall and Bruce Eagles winning 19-11. The highlight of this game was one of Ronnie`s drives which after a few glides/wicks! managed to leave only his teams 4 bowls on the rink.  Wendy and Murray showed their experience in the other semi-final winning 18-11 over Anne and Matty.

On to the final. Both leads, Lee and Wendy, started well and it was a tight struggle with skips Ronnie and Murray showcasing some great draw bowls. At 12-11 after 9 ends and with Lee continually getting bowls in the head, Ronnie edged ahead 18-12 and then 22-14 after 15 ends. With Murray needing to chase shots the game finished 23-17 to Lee and Ronnie.

Congratulations go to Lee and Ronnie who now have their names on the trophy for the third time.

Congratulations also to all players who competed, and who did so with great spirit and camaraderie.
