Keynsham Bowling Club

November 06 2019

THE combination of plenty of rain plus some sunshine has made the playing surface of the bowling green in the park look the best it’s been for a number of months. What a pity it is closed season!
Club captain Carm Riccio has been reviewing the events of the men in the last six months. They did very well in reaching the quarter finals of the Turnbull Cup and also getting into the third round of the National Two Rink competition.
 We were particularly proud that our men’s club champion, Paul Harsant, narrowly lost in the semi-final of the Somerset Champion of Champions competition.
In the September edition of the Voice, we included reports from the various team captains. One that was overlooked was that of the Friday Triples League, where we finished top with the highest total of aggregate scores since the inauguration of the league.
As the league fixtures finish, some of the men depart for their annual tour, and this year 24 of them were based in a hotel in Worcester and played matches against local sides.
As one season finishes, the planning for the next one is under way as match secretary Tony Hunter starts to compile the fixture list for 2020.
Our lady captain was delighted to report that the ladies won the North Somerset league for the second consecutive year and came second in the Mendip league, this being a big improvement on the previous season, when they finished bottom.
