2022 Summer Season Internal Competitions
Summer 2022 Outdoor Singles final played on 27/9/22
After heavy overnight rain the green was waterlogged in places but, as we were at the end of our season, we had to go ahead and play regardless. The contest was extremely close with both Keith, the 2019 champion (the last time the contest was held due to Covid) and Brian struggling at times to deliver their woods on the wet surface. The green was draining quite quickly though and the sun even made a brief appearance! After 22 ends the score was 19 across with Brian having the jack and he succeeded in claiming 2 shots from that end to give him the win. Paul Plant was the scorer and thanks to him for turning out on this damp morning.
Summer 22 Outdoor Doubles Final played 1/10/22
The doubles final was played on the Saturday afternoon following the last doubles semi-final the previous day as the weather on the Friday was deteriorating rapidly. A fine sunny day enabled Paul & Keith to comfortably outplay Brian & Chris to take the trophy on a 21-9 win. Well played all!

Home match vs Marriott House Vets 20/7/21 – A Big Win for our team (- by a single point!). Herewith the scoresheet:-
We started our season with a friendly match against the White Lion at Weston on Tuesday 8th June. Many of our team were unfamiliar with their relatively small, high-crowned green which led to a rather disappointing performance, being beaten by 168-98 points. Better luck next time! here’s the scoresheet:-
