There was some great bowling on Finals weekend, organised by Frances Ogden and Gordon Ogden, at West Backwell Bowls Club.

The ladies’ singles champion was Julie Ratcliffe, after she beat Sheila Claxton, and the men’s champion was Adam Knights, who beat Adam Shaw.

But there was success for Claxton, Adam Knights and Emma Knights and Shaw as they won other singles competitions, as did May Vivian, Lynn Pearson, Gordon Ogden, and Bob Keightley.

In other local club’s tournament West Backwell's Emma and Adam Knights were Mixed Pairs finalists at the Clevedon Tournament. 

Emma Knights and Ratcliffe played in the prestigious Somerset John's squad, and also got through the semi-finals in two Somerset competitions and Shireen Matley was also selected to play in some Somerset matches.

The North Somerset Bowls Club have had an enjoyable campaign, with the emphasis on their Thrive with Bowls campaign, which has brought in new members.

West Backwell are grateful for the grants and sponsorship received from Parker’s Estate Agents, who have given them new shirts, and Willow Chiropractors, The Rising Sun, Mark’s Mobile Butchers, Nelly Homes & Gardens, Karuta Sportswear, Sparkle Restore & Rocket Media UK Ltd for their support.

In November West Backwell will hold their End of Season Dinner, with presentation of the trophies before the Club will hold their popular annual Holly & Mistletoe event.
