The Harding Cup is a competition for local villages and, since the demise of Shere BC, consists of Albury, East Horsley, Puttenham, and Merrow.
Each side is made up of two triples, each containing at least one lady bowler. One team play at home, the other away. The scores are aggregated to discover the winning team. At the end of all matches a final is played on a neutral ground. in 2017, Merrow bowlers made it to the final, which was played at Puttenham, sadly losing by just a single point.
On Monday, 6th August, Merrow played Puttenham in the 2018 competition. On a sweltering afternoon, the away team of Debbie, David R, and Bob travelled to Puttenham, while the home team of Tony C, Lorna, and David E entertained our opponents.
The result was extremely close, as the away team lost by eleven points. However, the home team won by twelve points, giving Merrow an overall win.
