Ten­ter­den’s Ray Walker has reached the third round of the County Un­badged Sin­gles cour­tesy of a 22-6 vic­tory over S Sum­mers (Calver­ley Grounds).

A to­tal of 38 pupils from St Michael’s Pri­mary School at­tended the first of Ten­ter­den’s weekly ses­sions aimed at in­tro­duc­ing young­sters to the sport.

The chil­dren were shown how to de­liver a bowl by 10 mem­bers, led by the club coach, af­ter which they prac­tised bowling to a tar­get.

Although a few chil­dren strug­gled to de­liver the bowls prop­erly, they all en­joyed them­selves and are look­ing for­ward to the next ses­sion. The course is run­ning over five weeks.

Alice Var­ley (lead), Terry An­drews and skip Dud­ley Bryant led the way with a 22-12 win as Ash­ford Rail tri­umphed 98-88 away to Boughton in a match com­pris­ing six mixed triples.

Rail played three mixed triples away to Cheri­ton and were edged out 45-43, de­spite hav­ing the high­est win­ning rink.

Janet Wil­liams (lead), Mo Baugh­urst and skip Gra­ham Wil­liams beat their op­po­nents 18-14.

Rail men lost 4-1 away to Sand­wich in the Top Club com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day.

Ham­street gained six points from their Mer­maid League con­test at home to Ten­ter­den with a 70-59 vic­tory.

Skip Dick Baldwin, part­nered by Robin Col­lick, and Gwen Col­ley, were the day’s win­ning rink, 28-11.
