Due to illness, several bowlers had to withdraw from the competition which would usually be run on a knockout basis it was decided to form 2 groups, play a round robin with a final. This guaranteed each bowler plenty of bowling during the day.

Winner after round robin was Claire Domville.
Harry Atkin, Amy Brookes, Rhys Taylor , Daniel Adams, Ray Kirk and Chris Gray.

On the 7th end of the final Claire was 10 – 3 up, by the 11th end it was 10 all then Daniel got into his stride and forged ahead to win 21 – 10.
During the day our classification team classified two of our new members which now means they can compete in the classified singles in the future.
All in all, it was a good day and enjoyed by all.
The medals and trophy were presented to the winners by Gedling IBC President Mal Frost.
Maggy Smith, DBE Competition Secretary thanked the markers and helpers and wished everyone a ‘Happy and healthy New Year’ and safe journey home.
Heavy rain and dangerous driving conditions across the country did not deter the players turning up for this celebration match. After some initial delays, the introductions and exchange of DBE pennant and Leicester County plaque, the match finally got under way and DBE really did show Leicester the WAY. From the off DBE took the lead and gently but surely increased their lead throughout the 18 ends.
This years Gedling Open Pairs competition was, again, very well attended over the weekend of 17th/18th August. Organiser Maggy Smith, in her usual efficient and cheery style arranged all 24 bowlers into two round robin groups of six pairs.
