Lyme Regis Bowling Club: This has been an extremely busy week for the club, with the start of the men's leagues and no fewer than six friendlies.

Add to that all the various preliminaries in the county games, some people have seen very little of their partners or homes!

The main weather feature has been the strong, and at times very cold, winds which not only make the actual bowling tricky, it makes those competing cold very quickly.

The men have had varying luck in the league, the championship team taking the maximum from their encounter with local rivals Bridport, whilst the 'A' team were narrow losers at Greenhill.

The 'B' team had a nightmare at home to Dorchester; it's going to be a testing season having moved up a division.

The ladies had a superb win at Broadstone, taking all 10 points. This must be the strongest start the girls have made for a few years and augers well for the rest of the season.

The ladies also took all the points in their Edna Paisley encounter with Bridport Blue.
