Three ladies from Severalls Jubilee Bowls Club triumphed at the Lyme Ladies Triples Tournament. Team members Anne Bright, Ann Larcombe and Lesley McLaren were one of 20 teams invited to participate in the tournament. Teams were divided into two sections of 10, with each team playing three timed matches of 55 minutes. Points were awarded for a win and the winning team of each section played in the final.
The trios first game was against the Welsh Dragons from Poole, which they won and the next game against Sherborne, also won by the ladies from SJBC. The final game against a team from Lyme Regis was won by the Crewkerne trio, who thought that there would be other teams with better shot difference. It therefore came as a great surprise, when the overall winners of the tournament at that stage, were announced as SJBC. The final game was played against the Sunnies, a team from Greenhill Bowling Club in Weymouth. There were two trial ends and nine ends played, resulting in a comfortable 12 – 4 win for the three ladies from Severalls Jubilee Bowls Club in Crewkerne, who commented: “It had been an excellent day, enjoyed by all and very well organised by Lyme Regis Bowls Club.”
