On Saturday, 2nd July, a windy day with some sharp showers, we visited the new Ripley Bowls Club. The new green is right next to the A3 but the traffic noise was soon forgotten as we got into the match.
We were playing triples over four rinks. With such a strong wind, the bowls didn’t always go where one expected, and a rain shower prompted the interval tea break. However, the sun did come out and the latter half of the match was played in lovely conditions. Merrow won on three of the four rinks and had a good 34 point win overall.
The Ripley team team very welcoming and it was a pleasure to visit them. We look forward to the return match at Merrow on 23rd July.
