Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club pick up victory on tour to Algarve
The Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club played four matches on a tour to the Algarve in Portugal.
The visitors were pleased to win nine rinks out of 28 overall, as well as take one match win, given that games were played at clubs with unusual and sometimes idiosyncratic surfaces like carpet.
In Alvor, Vic Matthews led his team of Barbara Clark, Sue Caddy and Clive Wheller to the best winning rink.
And Dennis Stansfield did the same in Tavira with Tony Hamblin, Cherith Deane and Rosemarie Aston.
