We entertained Walberton in a friendly match on Tuesday afternoon 24th July, with Wisborough running out winners in the match by 19 shots. On Mat 1 (Jane, Marilyn, Gavin and Bernard) winning 26-10 and Mat 2 (Hilary, Lorraine, Tony and Monica) winning 19-16 giving a Match Result of 45-26.

The Club Triples Competition on Monday 6th August was well attended with 6 teams taking part, the top two teams going through to Finals Day on the 3rd September. The teams all played 4 games of 8 ends against random opponents and it turned out to be a very competitive day. Finishing in 3rd place with 4 points were David, Marilyn, Joan/Jean, in 2nd place with 5 points were Monica, Hilary and Alex. But congratulations go to Bernard, Linda and Gavin who remained unbeaten throughout the day to take top spot with 7 points.  Our sponsors (Eight Wealth Management) were in attendance, represented by Steve Adsett who presented a cheque for £250 (see photo right) to our President Reg Hickman.

We then travelled to Forest for a friendly match on Saturday 11th August, with Wisborough losing the match by 23 shots. On Mat 1 (Connor, Marilyn, Lorraine and Monica) losing 13-22 on Mat 2 (Linda, Hilary, Gavin and Tony) losing 8-22, giving a Match Result of 21-44.

Finally we entered a team in the Portsdown Charity Fours in Waterlooville on Sunday 12th August, finishing 2nd in our group behind a team from Infinity. Well done to Linda, Gavin, David and Monica who during the day won 3 of their 5 games, narrowly losing the other 2.
