After what seemed like freezing weather on Monday evening and wet weather on Tuesday afternoon, the teams have at last had some decent weather tonight, Thursday. It had been a beautiful hot sunny afternoon and the Division 7 teams were looking forward to their local “Derby” to kick off their season, with the Men’s D team at home to the Mixed Team. The green was flooded in sunshine instead of water as the games got underway and everyone had a most enjoyable evening. The match was won by the Men’s D team but the mixed team put in a good performance with their best performance of the night coming from Peggie. Well done Peggie! Let’s hope the weather stays fair for the foreseeable future.
Well it was a soggy start to the season for the teams in the Malpas Seniors League playing on Wednesday afternoon this week. Our own greens were pretty waterlogged with the bowls ploughing through surface water and players needing to avoid obvious puddles but players gamely soldiered on with a strategic tea break during the worst of the downpour. The match was the C team versus the D team which the D team eventually won – by 1 point!
The B team however had braved the weather to go to Cunliffe but arrived back early in the afternoon because that green was apparently underwater. First match and it will need to be re-arranged.
The sun is shining as I write this, so lets hope for better weather tonight!
