Friendly - Men v Ladies - April 2017
On a pristine playing surface, Braintree Bowling Club had their opening internal competitive bowls match on Saturday 22nd April, with the Ladies versus the Gentlemen members. There were 30 players in total, playing triples on 5 rinks, but because of the imbalance of men to women, mixed teams were nominated to play for the ladies, while the all male teams were totally playing for the gentlemen's section of the club.
Overall, after a long deliberation on scores, it was finally decided that the Ladies had won by 3 shots. Everyone concerned with playing or supporting these matches were appreciative of the quality of play by all playing members, plus the extremely well prepared playing surface of the rinks.
