Women's

Last week the ladies played three social games on the grass green. Everyone was pleasantly surprised at how the speed of the green is improving, which makes playing a lot easier - thanks to Alex and his helpers on a great effort. On Thursday, the grade 4 pennants ladies played an away match at Forster. The weather was lovely for bowls, no wind and a very pleasant temperature. Both teams played really well, with Jill Everett's team coming in with a draw (21 all) and Jean Holstein's team just losing (25-20), giving Forster an overall win of 46-41. There are two more pennants matches next week, so good luck and hoping for a win this time.
