There were some surprising results when Sidford Short Mat Bowling Club held its annual Handicap Singles competition in Sidford Social Hall.

Three players with handicaps - Kathie Ellis, Betty Smith and Val Sharp all reached the semi-final stage. These results all indicate an improving skill level within the club.

The final was between Kathie Ellis and her husband Peter who plays off a zero handicap, the result in doubt until the last 'end' but Peter prevailed and added the Handicap Singles title to his open club championship, which he won last November.

Sidford Short Mat Bowling Club is now enrolling new members, both experienced and beginners, to join them on their club afternoons each Tuesday and Wednesday between 2-4pm. Whether you are a competitive type or would just fancy an afternoon, 'roll- up' on club days, you will be made equally welcome. Tuition is given to absolute beginners, so ring for details on 01395 516130 or 579678.
