Ladies Top Club

Ladies Top Club 2018 

In this prestigious County Competition, Braintree Ladies Top Club drew at home to Dovercourt Bowling Club, which resulted in a very closely fought match.  The teams included ten players from each club, using 4 rinks for Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours, where the total of shots decided the eventual winners.  Unfortunately for Braintree, victory fell to the visitors who won on 3 rinks - Singles, Triples and Fours, with the Braintree Pairs team of Olive Hawkins and Linda Butcher taking the honours in their match.

The game was played in a friendly spirit on an extremely well-prepared green.  In fact, due to the quality of the Braintree Bowling Club's Green of 6 rinks, the Essex County Bowling Association have booked several Trial and Full County matches to be played at the Club over the rest of this season.  This is a "feather in the cap" for the green keeping team of volunteers who take pride in their work, producing probably one of the best greens in the County.
