Ladies Singles Finals 31 March 2018 - Finalists were Shirley Crick and Julie Singer. Shirley got off to a quick start, taking a 7- 0 lead after the first 3 ends before Julie started to get the distance and line and drew back to 7-6. Julie then took the lead 13-8 after 4 successive winning ends, but the Shirley came back with 4 winning ends of her own to get the score back to 14-13. From this point onwards both ladies found another gear and some magnificent bowling saw both moving to a 20-20 score, before Shirley was victorious on the final end by the single point required. The photo shows both finalist with Shirley on the right with the trophy and Julie on the left. The Men's pairs final was also played on 31 March and was contested by Steve Witcombe and Paul Robbins against Nigel Lidster and Nigel Siford. This was another close game with some excellent bowling. The two Nigel's took an early lead after 4 ends going 5-1 up and after a quick rally from their opponents went into a 9-4 lead after 9 ends. After a second rally the scores were tied on 11-11 and then went to 13-13, with little to separate the two pairs. However, a 4 and 4 on the 18 th and 19 th ends gave Steve and Paul a good lead and although the Nigel's won the last two ends, Steve Witcombe and Paul Robbins won the match 20-17. The two photos show the finalists and the winners after the event.
