Prattens Bowls Club play on
This week Prattens were supposed to have three matches - a ladies’ game, a mixed and one men’s game but, unfortunately, Keynsham Ladies were unable to fulfil the ladies fixture which left Prattens with a gap in the schedule.
The ladies decided to fill in the time with a practice session, a cuppa and a natter which sounds to me like a good second prize option.
We, of course, had our usual Monday Night club session where a number of members got in some much needed early season practice (and more chat and socialising).
On Saturday, the men’s team travelled to play in a friendly at the Bath Bowls Club in a three rink game when the weather was perfect for a game of bowls. One rink lost by six shots, one rink won with a shot on the last end and one rink lost very heavily and Bath were good enough not to give out the total score during the social gathering afterwards because, after all, it was a friendly match.
On Sunday, the mixed team also travelled, but this time to Mark Moor where they played a four rink triples game. The weather was not as kind as on the Saturday with fine drizzle for most of the game but this must have suited Prattens as they won on three of the four rinks with an overall winning score of 55-47 shots.
We will be having another club night on Monday where anyone is welcome to come along and find out what all the fuss is about.
We were scheduled to have two home ladies games this week and a mixed game on Sunday at Frome Park but we have already heard that the Tuesday game has been cancelled by our opponents. Graeme Smith
