The first of the main internal tournaments of the year at Retford Bowling Green, the Secretary’s Fours, enjoyed an excellent turnout and resulted in a win for Mike Boon, Sue Bradford, Millie Satchell and John Peat. They held off the challenge of Trevor and Maureen Lewis, Ben Palmer and Joan Mather, to cap a fine day of bowling in warm summer sunshine.
Another close encounter was enjoyed in the Mixed Triples, when Paul Thorpe and Mandy and Chris Cooper won with the last bowl of the tournament, to beat Elizabeth and David Brammer and Fred Mills.
The success of the open day and subsequent coaching days, has attracted a lot of interest with the public and the club hopes that they may benefit from these, by increasing their membership.
