3 February: The final of the Club Fours Championship was played today in warm conditions tempered by a north-easterly sea breeze.
There was no clear favourite for the final which proved to be the case with either side in a position to win on many occasions.
Gary Wynne, Geoff Page, David Benson and Mark Hair were opposed to Noel Jackson, Greg Smith, Geoff Fowler and Jeff Baker.
The initial sparing saw both teams at 6-6 after 6 ends.
A break of 6 shots at the 7th and 8th saw Mark’s side take a 6 shot lead and as it proved they were never headed during the remainder of the game.
Jeff’s side closed to within 2 at the 16th but the momentum swung back the other way with Mark’s side winning 22-17.
Congratulations to all the players for a wonderful exhibition of bowling befitting a final.
The Club Fours Champions for 2019 are;
Gary Wynne, Geoff Page, David Benson and Mark Hair.
The Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club new competition strip was unveiled in the Club Fours final today.

In other news;
Pennants selectors met this week to view the talent that we have and put together grades and team combinations.
With 54 players at their disposal the task of putting teams together is never easy.
It is expected that some in-house trial games will be organised in the near future.
