It’s always a pleasure to compete at Feniton Bowls Club and this year, as usual, the home green was in pristine condition, writes David Evans.

However, the Phear Park bowlers were not able to adapt and were never in the hunt, ultimately going down by 73 shots to 43.

There was some success with the triple of Kay Beresford, Bob Baker and Brian Summers playing a very steady game to be the lone Park success, thanks to a 16-12 victory.

In the Over-60s League, the Park B team were in action at home to Tiverton West End and they served up a terrific all-round performance to bank a second eight point white-wash of the early season.

The rink of R Tatchell, R Rooke and skip Brian Halsey had a very easy win, securing a 29-11 success in which they enjoyed two fours, a five and a six!

Phear Park have had several new recruits into the Over-60s teams this year and this reflects in the B team results this season so far.

Sadly, the A team still haven’t got out of the starting blocks and ended up with only one point at home to a good Exonia team.

Let’s hope that Park can show a bit of progress at Chardstock this week.

A friendly at Chudleigh was a minor disaster with a loss of 97-62.

It is fair to say that most of the Park players found the very fast green difficult to get used to, but Sarah Westacott again skipped a winning triple by four shots.

For the first time in recent years the club has had a number of new bowlers joining the club and there is set to be a Phear Park Open Day on Saturday, June 9, when everyone will be welcomed to have a try on the green and enjoy some cake and a cup of tea!

Please do remember that Phear Park Bowls Club is open each Friday afternoon for free bowling for beginners and experienced bowlers.

Anyone is welcome to come along and join in with all that is required being suitable flat-soled footwear.
