PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Not sure how you would describe our form. We seem to vary from not very good to not very very good to bl**dy marvellous. This week was not very, very good to marvellous.

Tuesday League.

Away – Ashwood Park – 24 July – 6.00pm.

Now earlier in the day there had been a stonking amount of precipitation in Buxton, rain to you and me. The wet stuff that comes out of the sky. The difference in the way our bowls played was quite remarkable and although the ‘green’ was still very slick it was really nice to play on. Even when we lost a game it was only by a few points namely Pat B and Dennis E going down 21 – 18. John B, playing with Harry B stormed home 21 – 10, with our captain fantastic Dawn playing with Frances also winning handsomely 21 – 11. We saved the best until last with stupendous Rick and Edith veritably strolling home 21 – 6. What a difference a week makes. Ashwood Park 48, Parwich 81.

Next match – Home – Matlock Bath – 31 July – 6.00pm

Thursday Friendly League.

Away – Bakewell – 26 July – 1.45pm.

Talk about the curates egg, being good in parts, we had an archbishops egg, down-right rancid. And again what a difference a week makes in the bowls world. Bakewell’s green is not particularly good to play on at the best of times, but when there has been no liquid refreshment for the grass it is diabolical. The doubles games were best forgotten with only Sue and Liz getting anywhere near, Bakewell 63, Parwich 38.

Although we shared the 6 singles games 3 each, our scores were the complete opposite of last week, we lost very well. The only bright spot to mention, and what a bright spot it was, was Dennis E playing singles for the first time since he was a teenager (Dennis is in his 80’s) winning 15 – 12. This has to go down in the annals of Crown Green bowls, as one of the greatest games ever played. Fantastic! Suffice it to say we lost 80 – 64. Overall Bakewell 143, Parwich 102. At least we got over a hundred.

Not sure if next week will be any better at Wirksworth, keep your fingers crossed.

Next Match – Wirksworth – 2 August – 1.45pm.
