Honiton hosts Disability Bowls England 2020 regional competition

Honiton Bowling Club hosted the 2020 South West Area Disability Bowls England Interclub Competition, where eight teams took part.

Competing this year at the Streamers Meadows clubhouse were teams from Dunheved Bowling Club, Cornwall, Taunton Deane Bowling Club, Somerset, Honiton Bowling Club, and three teams from Plymouth Life Centre.

The teams were divided into two groups of four playing against each other. Each of the three matches played by the team consisted of eight ends, with a time limit of one-and-a-quarter hours.

The teams gained two points for a win and one for a draw.

The winner of group A played the winner of group B in the final, and the runners-up in the groups played each other to decide the 3rd and 4th place.

The two finalists were Plymouth Life Centre B team – Andy Dale, Rebecca Cox and Amy Brooks against the Honiton team – Marion Baxter, Les Crook and Kevin Vernon. Plymouth won (6-3).

The match between Taunton Deane and Dawlish proved to be close with the teams drawn after eight ends so an extra end was played to decide third and fourth places. Taunton Deane winning (7-6).

The competition this year was sponsored by Select Windows.

Disability Bowls England would welcome a sponsor for the 2021 competition which would cover rink fees and individual trophies for the bowlers.
