What a performance! Our men’s team travelled to Budleigh Salterton on Thursday for a match in the Top Club competition and came away with a superb win, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

With the match standing all square at 2-2, everything hinged on the pairs match. With one end to go, scores level and the light fading, the Chardstock men held their nerve to take the match.

The final Sunday of May saw the club hold its annual Silver Jubilee Cup competition.

Unlike recent years the weather behaved and everyone who participated had a great afternoon.

The team of Rosie Pratt, Brian Howard and John Rolph were the eventual winners.
