Yesterday saw 24 teams (from 5 of the 6 member ECCBA counties) compete for the very first Mick & Sandra Hearn Memorial 4's tournament.
A very high standard of bowls was seen throughout the day which was played in a very friendly atmosphere. The winning team was from Barking (Suffolk) who defeated Lilley (Bedfordshire) in a keenly contested final. Congratulations to both teams who played excellent bowls throughput the day and deserved their places in the final.Full results from the tournament will be displayed on the website later in the week.
Photos from the event (kindly taken and uploaded by Alan Bull) can be found on the website including pictures of the two teams who contested the final.
We managed to raise around £420, this was from event entries, raffle, refreshments and target bowl (won with a score of 21 by Sandra Gammage & Pete Cook).
Many thanks to all of those who competed in the event. We will be looking to run this tournament every year and hope that the success of yesterdays tournament will encourage more teams to take part next year.
