Rugby Bowling Association round-up

Rugby Bowling Association

Last Sunday (June 23) Rugby Bowling Association (RBA) went to Corley Bowls Club to play against Coventry & District Bowling Association. Due to a congestion of other matches and competitions the match was reduced to four rinks aside rather than the usual six.

It was a warm, but cloudy afternoon where a competitive game was played in a friendly atmosphere, with the RBA prevailing three rinks to one and a shot score of 80 to 63.

Rugby’s highest winning rink comprised Grange bowlers, Doug Anderson, Brian Beere, David Knee and skip Peter Dymond. The other two winning skips were Nigel Malka (Oakfield), and Tony Hoffman (Thornfield).

Well played all, the RBA now have a record of played four, won four.
