Last week I reported that the trio of Prattens Ladies had reached the quarter finals of the County triples and this week, they played that game and won, beating a trio from Ilminster nineteen-twelve to move on to the semi-finals. 

Their next opponents are as yet unknown. Both the Ladies’ and the Men’s teams played against Purnells this week in league matches and both lost without picking up any points. 

On Saturday in inclement weather, Prattens played a mixed friendly game against Shepton Mallet which was curtailed by heavy rain after sixteen of the scheduled eighteen ends (perhaps we should not have played two trial ends). 

After the game, both captains agreed that the result was an honourable draw as both teams were winning on two of the four rinks and the overall score was extremely close. 

In spite of the weather, we all agreed that it had been an enjoyable game played in a really good spirit.

We still have room for some more members, male or female,  so if anyone else wishes to join the club (or discuss joining the club) please contact Barrie or Pauline Dando on: 01761-412705 or come along to the club evening on Monday evenings from 6pm.

Further information can be found on the Club website: which also includes information about future club fixtures.
