There was a most welcome return to form in the for the Phear Park men's teams playing in the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, with all three teams winning - and banking maximum points, writes Paul and Kay Beresford.
The A team triples of Brian Summers, David Adams and Rod Davidson, and Rick Tatchell, Tony Hanson and David Evans (skip) won 23-7 and 21-8 respectively to take maximum points in a home game against Axminster.
The B team travelled to Culm Vale, and secured an overall win of 33-27. Park's successful triples were John Dill, John Whyte and Simon Weclawek (skip); and Peter Burch, Roland Heale and David Horne (skip).
The C team, first had a rearranged fixture at Hemyock, coming away with the eight points following a 43-34 score line with the two triples of Mike Fowler, Patrick MacAulay and Tony Dealler (skip); and Mike Killoran, Peter Sydenham and Bob Baker (skip) winning 21-20 and 22-14 respectively. They were not so successful in their next fixture.
The long trip to Wellington in Somerset saw them lose both triples, going down 19-58 overall.
The first round of this season's Top Club competition saw Park entertain Sidmouth. Park's John Dill won the two-wood singles match 22-13, with Mike Ebdon winning the four-wood singles 21-8.
