Chardstock Bowls Club started their integral pairs league last Monday (July 13).

It was the first time there has been any competitive bowls played at the club this season owing to the Coronavirus pandemic.

A total of 32 players are taking part and they are split into six teams who contest matches of three sets.

What is clear is that all the players involved are enjoying the competitive nature of the pairs league as opposed to the roll-ups that had been played since action on the green resumed.

It must be recorded that the green is running very well which is testament to the wonderful efforts of the club’s ground crew, who have collectively worked very hard this year and the green is looking in pristine condition.
