Wedmore on tour

Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club enjoyed a successful trip to the Algarve for its latest bowls tour.

ISLE of Wedmore Bowls Club members made a welcome return to the Algarve for its bowls tour.

Twenty-seven members left Bristol for Arma�ao de Pera, which proved to be a popular destination as Clevedon Promenade and Clarence Park were also touring in the area.

The first game was played at San Antonio in Alvor and as a new green had recently been laid, nets were laid on the green. In difficult conditions, Wedmore won on two rinks and lost five.

The next match was at a new venue, the Vila da Luz in Praia da Luz. Owing to the heat and lack of shade, the game was split up into two sets of nine ends. Wedmore ended with two rinks won, one drawn and four lost.

The third match was at Amendoeira, another new grass venue. Wedmore had a better result here, winning three of the seven matches.

The final match was at Parque da Floresta, another carpet green. Despite all the games being closely fought, Wedmore only managed to win one game and drew one.
