More tournament success came Barnstaple Bowling Club’s way as June Wallis, Brenda Kinnear and skip Dennis Best took second spot in the Rock Park Mixed Triples last weekend.

With match cancellations abounding due to the weather, the Devon Ladies Johns Trophy team, which included Barum`s Jackie Hemmings-Anthony, were fortunate in their journey to Warminster to play Surrey in the National quarter final, recording a 135–106 win. Jackie, Liz Healy, Julia Barnes and skip Sue Evans emerged as Devon`s top rink of the day. They now go to Leamington on July 28 to play the winners of Nottingham and Somerset in the semi final.

Barnstaple are now offering “taster sessions” to anyone interested in taking up the sport – for further details contact Bruce Buxton on 01271 345681
