Sunday, 1st July, saw Merrow travel to Ripley for a match of three triples.
The day was hot and overcast, making for very sticky conditions. Fortunately, there was a ready supply of cool drinks by the green to keep us hydrated.
The match was very hard fought, with an outstanding win of 22-8 for Merrow’s Lesley, Len, and John. Well done to them. Sadly, we could not emulate that performance on the other two rinks, and Merrow lost by the slimmest of margins; 44-45.
Because of the heat, we had played the eighteen ends without a break, so the tea provided by Ripley was most welcome.
We look forward to our return match on Saturday, 1st September.
