In the Dorset Womens Bowls League, Jasmine Bishop and Nola Stephens won the club pairs title.

This competition is open to any ladies pair which has been drawn randomly at club level and then reach their club finals.

After beating Swanage and Dorchester the pair faced Broadstone in the final. The match went to a deciding extra end and finally gave victory to the Lyme pair.

In the friendlies Lyme were well beaten by the Patrons Nd Seaton but, scraped a win against tourists from Moreton-in-Marsh played in very chilly conditions, and Victoria BC from Torquay played in warm sunshine.
