English Bowling Federation National Finals Held in Newark

Newark Indoor Bowls and Boccia Club were once again honoured to hold the Annual English Bowling Federation National finals in its 21st year. Over a hundred bowlers from all around the country participated in a very enjoyable week of excellent bowling.

Local bowlers, Nick Osborn and Chairman Steve Ayling qualified to play in the menís pairs. Christine Young with Andy Zemontas in the mixed pairs and Jeny Humphries and Gail Donnison in the ladies pairs. Unfortunately none of the pairs qualified for the final stages after coming up against tough opposition which included International bowlers. All the players were well supported by fellow club members from Newark. Well done to all for qualifying for the EBF finals which is a tremendous achievement from the Nottinghamshire area.

Jeny Humphries did manage to reach the semi final of the over 60s ladies singles of which she was defending champion. After a very close game against a competitor from Humberside Jeny was defeated 21-18 with both players with a chance to win the game on the last end. The Humberside lady later went on to win the final.

The Directors of Newark Indoor Bowls and Boccia Club would like to say a big thank you to the staff and all club volunteers who gave up their valuable time to help in the making of such a successful week, with bowls being the winner once again.
