There was an unfortunate draw for Honiton Bowling Club in the National Ladies Masons match played this week, as the Honiton A team were pitched against Honiton B Team.  

The obvious outcome guaranteed that one team would be knocked out of the competition but the glass half-full perspective was the knowledge that Honiton would definitely have representation in the next stage of the event.    

There was good bowling on display from both teams on the day and was commented on by the spectators. The winning team was Honiton B with a score of (36 - 22). Top rink: J Judith Broom, Shirley Hiscocks, Lilian Hurley-Smith, Rita Barwick. 

A Mixed Friendly Tripes match was played at Honiton against members from Budleigh Bowling club, Honiton winning the match (50 - 26). Top rink: D Hawkins, R Russell, G Osborne (27 – 13).
