Monte Mar Bowls and Social Club
Javea Green Bowls Clubdominate in Calpe Open Triples competition On a blustery grey Sunday, 48 players made their way to Calpe for the much anticipated and always over subscribed Open Triples competition.
This small friendly Bowls Club with enviable location right on the seafront attracts players from Javea, BBC, Bonalba and El Cid who relish the competitive bowling day which is always played in good spirits.
There were two groups consisting of eight teams of three, each group played four one hour games. Whilst one group were playing the other group had a well earned rest either retiring to the café next door or those who took their own picnics, were rewarded with sunshine whilst sitting on the beach wall overlooking the ocean.
With 5 points for a win and 1 point per end won, the eventual scores between first, second and third could not have been closer, with top and second spot only decided on the last game of the day.
The winners with 41 points were David Gardiner, Dee Hamilton and Velia Wood.
Second place with 39 points went to Jan and Paul Brown and Greg Sperring (the only non Javea member amongst the winners).
Third position was also a Javea team of Di Manser, Niel Roake and Jack Wardrop.
Javea Green's Winter League team put themselves back in contention for the league title with an excellent 11-1 win against neighbouring club Benitachell.
The Javea Northern leagues also had a good week with Onyx winning 8-2 against Benitachell Jaguars, Opals winning 6-4 against Bonalb, Only the Quartz team went down 6-4 to Finca Guila.
