Women’s Pairs Championship

The first day of the Women’s Championship Pairs was held on Wednesday 17th November, in near perfect conditions for the 24 players. The sectional-played event saw four sections competing competitively, resulting in four pairs going through to the knockouts. Section winners were Jan Cook and Liz Marshall, Lorraine Hyde and Jan Paniperis, Barbara Lorencs and Pauline Marsden, and Pauline Bourne and Robyn Van Mosseveld.

The semi finals continued on Wednesday 24th November, with Jan and Liz displaying excellent bowls to win their game comfortably against Lorraine and Jan P. The other semi final was played with Pauline Bourne and Robyn against Barbara and Pauline Marsden. This proved to be a tough competition with Pauline and Robyn coming through as the winners with the final score 13-10.

The final playoff between Jan Cook & Liz Marshall and Pauline Bourne & Robyn Van Mosseveld saw Jan and Liz get off to a good start, with Pauline and Robyn fighting back to catch up on the scoreboard on the last few ends. Conditions changed in the afternoon with the wind proving difficult. The final came to a nail-biting conclusion, with Jan and Liz winning by just 1 shot. Congratulations to Jan and Liz on the well played game, the first Pairs Championship at the Club for each of them.
