Women’s 100 Up Singles Championship

Wednesday 6th October saw the start of the first Women’s Championship event for the season, with five sections of three players playing in the Women’s 100 Up Singles Championship.

The event continued last Sunday, firstly with an alignment round between Kaye Martin and Jackie Maxwell. The score was very close for the entire game, with the result coming on the final bowl of the game in Jackie’s favour, winning 101-99.

In the semi-finals, Jackie played Pauline Bourne and Robyn Woodward played Liz Marshall. Both Pauline and Liz were too consistent for their opponents and the final was set for a rematch of last year’s event.

Liz started strongly notching up a 23-7 lead but Pauline settled and the scores levelled within a few ends. Both players were putting down fine draw bowls and the scores remained close for most of the game. With several strong ends late in the game, Pauline took the lead and held it to eventually win the game 101-89.

It was good to see the players supported by the club spectators who witnessed some great ends, close games, and good sportsmanship over the two days. Thanks go to the Match Committee for running the event and to our volunteer markers and umpires.
