Clevedon Bowling Club’s Stef Branfield landed a notable double at the Bowls England National Championships in Royal Leamington Spa.
Branfield won the women’s four-bowl singles after being a semi-finalist on two occasions in previous years and the following week she went on to win the women’s two-bowl singles.
This “double” has only been achieved on two previous occasions and Branfield also reached the final of the Bowls England Champion of Champions after being a semi-finalist on three consecutive occasions.
Unfortunately she didn’t make it a treble, but was able to celebrate a fantastic achievement nevertheless.
