The Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club hosted the national pairs finals of the British Wheelchair Bowling Association.

THE Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club were proud to host the national pairs finals of the British Wheelchair Bowling Association for the second year.

Attended by president Terry Fitzgerald and chairman Ian Blackmore, and with 24 players from as far afield as Essex, Sussex and Pembrokeshire, it was a full weekend of competitive bowling.

Good weather held throughout the tournament and the green was in fine condition after recent rainfall, so conditions were perfect for this prestigious event.

Each of the four mini-leagues played two sets of nine ends and this format was also used for the semi-finals and finals. Standards were high and the competition intense, indeed both semi-finals needed a one-end shoot-out to determine the winners.
