Pip Sands: Parish
The summer league fixtures are well under way, with almost half of the matches played. We started the beginning of May with a home game against Martlesham, we made a good start with three teams playing well, and the visitors, apart from one team, found the mats difficult, at the end of an enjoyable evenings bowling, Offton and Willisham took the match by three games to two, and with a superior shots total, we won by 8 points to 2.
Our next match was away at Old Felixstowe, they are a tough team to play against, especially on their own mats, once again there was some good play by both sides, one of our teams played really well and managed a win, the final score being a reverse of the first match, and we lost 2 points to 8.
We finished the month by entertaining Claydon at home, another team we find hard to beat, but this time we just managed a win, it was a hard fought match with good bowling by both teams, and at the end we shared the games two each, but Offton and Willisham had the greater number of shots by a small margin, the end result was 6-4 to us.
We began June with a visit to Tuddenham, another club were we find adjusting to the mats very difficult , and we normally don't win a game, but one team had a good night and bowled well, and managed to win their game, we lost the other three, and went down 2-8.
Our last match in June was the return game at home to Old Felixstowe, again there was some good bowling by both teams, and the visitors managed to adapt to our mats, better than we adapted to theirs, it was a close match, with the visitors winning two games, the home team won one and one was drawn, O/W were fortunate to have a greater number of shots, by a small margin, and so the points were shared 5-5.
The club are looking forward to the new village hall being completed, and we hope it might encourage some new members to join. We welcome anyone who would like to have a go at playing at our club nights on Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm, for more information contact Valerie on 01473 657023, or any club member.
