Torquay Bowls Trip – February 11th -16th 2024


15 players and one supporter went to Torquay for a 4321 tournament. Great fun was had by all with everyone enjoying themselves.

John Thorp, Mike Lockyer and Elaine Sadler got a “Hot Shot” and received their badges at the awards ceremony on Thursday evening.

On Wednesday afternoon after the short mat bowls had ended, they had an exciting very competitive (mainly the men!!) game of 10 pin bowling.

Roll on 2025 when we will be taking more teams.
