Ladies Top Club - May 2017
Braintree v Great Baddow
Hosting this prestigious Ladies County Top Club competition, the Braintree B.C. ladies put up an admirable performance against Great Baddow, prior winners of this County trophy and notably one of the strongest bowling clubs in the County.
The competition was played over four different bowling disciplines, Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours with the combined scores determining the winning team. Braintree's successful Triples team of Sandra Mayne, Danielle Gibbons and Pauline Green won their match comfortably by 8 shots. Unfortunately, the Singles and Pairs team were not able to repeat this, losing their games to their opponents, together with the Fours team who were unlucky enough to lose by just 1 shot.
Singles: G. Costin
Pairs: O. Hawkins and L. Butcher
Triples: Sandra Mayne, Danielle Gibbons and Pauline Green
Fours: Freda Laidlaw, Judith Kodz, Barbara Taylor and Rita Dodd.
The games were played in the true spirit of sportsmanship and good bowling, on a pristine and well-kept green, which is a credit to all the players and green keepers at Braintree Bowling Club.
