 CAA Almeria Ladies Singles

Dec. 2018 - Almeria BC

Report by Vic Parsons, photo editing  by John Carr. 

The Men and Ladies Singles CAA Singles Championship continued this year to be played over several days as opposed to the previous schedules when games were played over several months where games were arranged by players individually and controlled by ‘play by dates’ until they reached the Semi & Final stage. The new knockout over three days proved to be very successful in 2017.

The Ladies Singles Knockout competition was played at Almeria Bowling Club from Saturday 10th until the Final on Monday 12th November. Twenty-two entries from Indalo, Almeria and Cabrera Bowling Clubs took part. The weather was good with a slight wind at times over the three days. The quality of entries was excellent, and play proved to be very exciting throughout. Many expected winners did not make it to the final stages of competition.

The Final was between the winner, Chris Ivin against Ann Reynolds, both Indalo players, this was always going to be a tough game as both players had good close wins in their semi-finals against Christine Parkinson and Linda Harvey both from Indalo Bowling Club respectively.

Chris started well winning at the seventh end with the score 6-5. Ann then took four shots on the eighth end going ahead 9-6. Scores were level on eleventh and thirteenth end at 11-11 and 13-13. This was a crucial time in the game as although the quality of play was good, Ann was unable to move off her score of 13. Chris went on to win comfortably taking the championship 21-13.

Tony Lear, CAA Competition Secretary thanked all those that took part, bar and ground staff, Markers and Umpires, which without the competition could not take place. He the presented the trophy and prizes to the finalists. Vic Parsons then took the photographs. It goes without saying that thanks were in order for Tony in running the competition.

Winner, Chris Ivin.

Finalist & Winner.
