Madeira ladies have continued to enjoy success on both the national and local stages.

In the national singles section final Jan Roberts won 21-14 against Carrie Hadfield of Torquay United.

Roberts now heads into a match against the winner of the Cornish section and she goes with the very best wishes of everyone at Madeira.

In the County pairs there was a fine 33-12 success for Liz Smerdon and Sue Harriott against the Sidmouth pairing of Sue Mizon and Zena Johnston.

In a Foxlands fixture against Kingsley Madeira picked up points on three rinks out of the four on offer which represented a very good day’s work!

In the meeting at Kingsley Dee Williams, Dee Norman, Janine Orchard and Sue Harriott won 14-13 whist the team of Christine Macaulay, Sandie Cox, Angela Denner and Liz Smerdon went down 34-14.

Last Sunday saw the launch of a new competition, the County Top Club with Madeira paired against Isca.

This was another of those matches that is contested home and away.

In Exeter three disciplines were played; Angela Denner played the 2-wood singles whilst Liz Smerdon and Sue Harriott their match 21-17. Also in action away were Jill Perrin, Jenny Smith, Brenda Marks and Jackie Howle.

Back at Exmouth there were two discipline successes with Jan Roberts winning her match 21-14 and Dee Norman, Christine Macaulay and Catherine King triumphed in their tie 21-11.
