? IN the annual Brenda Dunston Trophy at Woodspring, the men were looking to record a victory against the ladies.

The event consists of three two-hour, two-rink sessions. For the last couple of years the competition, commonly known as the battle of the sexes, has been won by the ladies.

However, this year the men triumphed by winning four of the six rinks played. All games were played with good humour and a lot of friendly banter. Thanks go to the members who organised and catered for the event.
