Over the weekend of 21-22 September, Merrow played our last two matches of the outdoor season: Seale and Sands at home, and Castle Green away.
Seale and Sands
On Saturday, 21st September, Merrow hosted our annual match with Seale and Sands. This was only our second match, so still an unknown quantity. On an autumnal day, we played three rinks of triples. In a close match, Merrow were victorious on one rink but narrowly lost on the other two, with a final score of 38-44. Well done to Mark, Joan, and Bob, who won 17-9.
For our final outdoor match of the season, Merrow visited Castle Green for a match of four triples. Heavy rain in the morning stopped in time for the match and held off until the finish. Each side won on two of the rinks but Merrow came out on top overall with a score of 68-63. Our top rink was Lesley, Joan, and Bob with a tremendous score of 23-9. A great result. Close behind were Judy, Lewis (playing in his first match), and Ken with a score of 16-12. Again, well done. Commiserations to the other two rinks.
No photos of either match I’m afraid, as I was still on holiday. As a result, this report is derived from the score sheets!
Coming up next…
…is our indoor match against Mole Valley at Leatherhead on Wednesday, 27th November. Do put your name down to play. The team sheet is in the hut, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to the list.
