On Sunday 8th March, four of our members were part of the eight player team representing West Sussex in the Over 55’s Pairs National Finals at Solihull Indoor Bowls Club.  Bernard Adsett and Gavin Jones won 1, lost 1 and 1 walkover in their 3 group matches, progressing to the knockout stages having finished second in the group.  They then beat a strong Essex pair in the first knockout round, before eventually losing to a Kent pair in the following round.  Monica Enticknap and David Luxford won 1 and lost 2 of their 3 games in the group stages, one of the defeats being to the eventual champions.  Congratulations to all that took part.

Then, on 15th March, the Club Committee, after following the ever changing nature of the covid-19 situation, reluctantly decided to suspend all club activities with immediate effect. This will be until such time as a clearer picture emerges about the safety of resuming normal events.  The current Club competitions and Finals Day will therefore be suspended with the intention of resuming them at a later date.

Take care and stay safe,

Monica Enticknap, Captain
