Our ladies exploits at Leamington in the National's started as slowly as was possible with Carole, Pam, Helen and Caroline going out of the Fours in the preliminary round on August 7th, followed by Myra and Helen going out in the first round of the Pairs ten days later.

The third week of the Championship's saw an improvement in the weather and with the sun on their backs, our Senior four of Mo Cox, Mary Tee, Carole Galletly and Caroline Campion showed their true form, with three good wins against Nottinghamshire, Dorset and Berkshire taking them into a semi-final against the Hertfordshire, Riverain rink.

A place in the final was not to be, but congratulations to one and all for such a sterling effort.

 

Sunday saw our girls contesting the County Top Club final at the Thame club, playing against the ladies from Shiplake Village B.C. and hoping to go one better than last year when they lost in a closely fought final against Thame.

 

This year they took the title with a comfortable 3-1 win.

Mo Cox, fresh (or tired) from her exploits at Leamington, got things off to a good start with a comfortable 21-7 win in the singles. Mary Tee and Pam Shepherd followed this up with a 32-16 Pairs win, whilst Eloise Jones, Gill Sharp and Myra Lewis wrapped up the Triples 23-13. The only lost point was in the fours where Melody Sykes, Bev McNeil, June Bone and Anne Norton lost out to their opponents 12-23.

 

Well done girls, after a dissapointing start to the month, you are leaving August on a high.
