JGBC Hosts Spanish Team Training Camp

 For 2nd Year Running

June 2018 - Javier Green BC

Report by Yvonne Carvath, photo editing  by Amber Dineen & John Carr. 

Once again, Javea Green Bowling Club has hosted a 2 day training camp for the Spanish National Team. Next week the Spanish Squad travel to Cardiff, Wales to play against the U.S.A., Australia, South Africa and others in preparation for the ĎAtlantic Rim Tournamentí in 2019.

All the disciplines were played, Ladies and Gents Singles, Pairs, Triples and Rinks. So how did the Spanish Team fare against the Northern Costa Blanca teams, comprising players from BBC, El Cid and JGBC. Every volunteer player from JGBC was given a game and the thrill of going up against the National Side.

On the Saturday morning matches the Spanish Squad prevailed by 5 games to 3. Saturday afternoon they won 7 games to 1. Sunday morning was a repeat score of 7 games to 1 and in the afternoon they won again by 6 games to 2. Adding that lot up means Spain won by a superb 25 games to 7, which must have pleased their Manager, Graham Cathcart.

Graham stated he was impressed and pleased with the quality of the greens and the facilities provided at Javea Green. The whole event was played in a spirit of great camaraderie and was enjoyed by Players and Spectators alike.

Thanks are, therefore, due to the Club Management, Matthew and Brian Taylor and to our very own Alan Phillips for organising a well run tournament, thanks go also to the volunteer Umpire and Markers.
