18.04.15 - In the annual battle of the sexes the gents team at Bantham & Ongar Bowls Club took the trophy for the third year in a row. The men captained by Alan Dodd were successful on every rink. The match, as always was good humored with lots of friendly banter between the teams. The ladies, captained by Pat Kitson, were magnanimous in defeat.
The match, which was played in typical spring weather, was followed by a truly delicious buffet meal hosted by club president Lawrence Eldred. Both Lawrence and Alan gave speeches, Lawrence emphasizing the friendliness of the club and how good it is to see new members.
The club has recently reduced the annual subscription for bowls players to £40 per year with no joining fee.
