On day three of the finals we saw Mary and Roy Banks winning again in the Australian pairs and Peter Crouch winning the men’s handicap. The weather throughout the whole of the weekend was quite hot so very challenging to the players who were in more than one match.

It all went very well thanks to Jackie Bell and Peter Crouch who are our competition secretaries. Our presentation lunch will be held on Sunday 22nd September. 

St Albans and District ladies finals were held at Harpenden Bowls club on the 8th September and out Hatfield ladies did us proud again beating Kings Langley in the Double Rink. The District men’s Triples league also played in the finals against North Mymms and lost by one shot on the last end which was a pity.
