Bowls Report


The season is rapidly coming to an end and as always seems to be the case our fortunes are rapidly declining also. As we approach the change of season from summer to autumn Parwichians must start early hibernation.

Tuesday League.

Away – Whitworth Park – 7 August – 6.00pm.

Although the games were shared two apiece we could not match Whitworth’s points count. Pat and John B gave us a good win as did the ever reliable Edith and Rick, but our other pairs losses were greater. At the time we were third in the league and although we lost we have still maintained third place, which is good as only the top two teams are promoted and we are more than happy spending our time down below. Whitworth 76, Parwich 65.

Home – Bakewell – 14 August – 6.00pm.

Again the games were shared. It’s becoming a habit as our losses were again heavier than Bakewell’s. Tony A and John B got their game together after a dodgy start and eventually won 21 – 11. Edith and Rick again battled to a good win after trailing for most of the game, 21 – 18. Similarly Dot and Sue A, although they lost, came back well from a terrible start to only lose by 7. Best not mention captain Dawn’s result suffice it to say our pair lost. We must start plummeting down the table soon. Parwich 64, Bakewell 71. Only two matches to go for this year.

Next match – Away – Wirksworth – 21 August – 6.00pm.

Thursday Friendly League.

No match because of the charity game The Greenaway. Normally we have done quite well as a Club, winning the trophy on quite a few occasions, but not this year. Rick came closest, but was knocked out in the quarter final. Still the Greenaway Centre benefited from a good day and Ian J couldn’t stop winning on the Tombola. Wonder what Iris is going to do with the plethora of really useless, sorry useful, prizes!

Next match – Home – Bradwell A – 16 August – 1.45pm.

Bradwell are second in the division by a long way so a hard match was in the offing and so it proved to be. However, if nothing else we do try very hard and Sue A and Ian J played their little sock off to give us a great win in the doubles 21 – 7. Our other pairs faired less well so after the doubles we trailed 36 – 49.

Now although the green is beginning to come back to life it is still incredibly tricky to play on and our singles players, although also playing their socks off couldn’t match Bradwell. Having said that John H could do no wrong and gave us a great win 15 – 1. It was unfortunately to no avail, Parwich 66, Bradwell 73. Final score Parwich 102, Bradwell 122. Not a bad result in the general scheme of things.

Next Match – Away – Matlock Park – 23 August – 1.45pm
