DBE Maiden Pairs 2019 Report


Initially, it was a disappointing turnout for the DBE Maiden Pairs event with 2 teams withdrawing just before the event and another pulling out on the day due to illness.

The competition format was changed to a round robin with the bowlers consent and it all turned out well!

This competition is run for all DBE bowlers who haven’t won a major event such as a National or County competition or represented England.  We also run a Maiden Singles for those same bowlers that will be held later this year.

The winners of the Maiden Pairs were twins, Barry and Steven Nicholson winning all of their matches. Runners up were Colin Wagstaff and Daniel Adams. Also competing were Harry Atkins and Keith Haggerwood, Alex Comack and Andrew Bayston, Claire and Alastair Domville. Each team played a total of 4 matches.
