Horadada Bowls Club by Irene Graham

On Monday in the South Alicante Hurricane Division the Horadada Hawks were at home to San Luis Hercules.  The weather is heating up now and so are the results for Horadada.  We had a very comfortable win which is what we would hope for a home match.  Our winning rinks were:

Tracey Paffett, John Goddard and Roy Thomson 25 – 6

Irene Graham, Mick Kirby and Terry Hucknall 18 – 12

Carol Linehan, Mark Jukes and Bryan Eatough 20 – 9

With the overall shots going to Horadada the final result was 83 shots for to 52 against giving us 10 points to 2 against.  Week 5 and we are second in the table.  A great result.  Well played to everyone.  Halfway through the summer season and we only have one home match left.  Let’s hold on to our position Team Horadada.

On Wednesday in the VCL League we were at home once more, this time to Greenlands Jasmin.  A couple of close matches which could have gone either way but sadly for our trips it went the wrong way.  Our winning disciplines were:

Gents Singles – Terry Hucknall 21 – 13.  Great result Terry, well played.

Pairs – John Goddard and John Bailey 20 – 14.  Another great result, well played Guys.

With the result of the close matches we just managed to achieve the overall shots.  The final result was 89 shots for to 87 against giving each team 6 points each for a draw.

Our position in the VCL table is not so good.  We are second from the bottom but only 1 point behind Montemar who we play on Wednesday.  Come on Team let’s go for it and move up that table.  Keep ‘em bowls a rollin’.

Horadada offers a warm welcome to new or experienced bowlers, and provides the necessary equipment.  Our roll-up days for this friendly club are Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings.  Please contact Fred Trigwell on 659139129 for more information.

The Buckskins had a successful morning taking the rinks by 4 to 1 and the overall shots 98 to 76.

Dolly Ford, Pam Harris and Brian Harris 17-25. Janet Wright, Ron Greenstreet and Keith Longshaw 20-15. Ngaio Baldwin, Pete Baldwin and Malc Sykes 21-14. Ann Taylor, David Wright and Jim Taylor 20-8. Brian Gilham, Marion Haynes and Dave Haynes 20-14.

On Wednesday our VCL team were at Greenlands against a strong team. whilst losing in 4 of the disciplines, the rinks had a good win and Diane Yates lost the ladies singles by just the one shot. For further membership information contact Sheila Cox at or Brian Taylor on 965077093 or at
