Coming up the WCBA Championship Pairs Qualifier
Coming up  the WCBA Championship Pairs Qualifier
The Wiltshire Championship Pairs Qualifier will be held at Devizes Bowls Club on Sunday 30th November at 1.00 pm. As befits its status as our premier pairs event, the Championship Pairs is open to all primary Wiltshire members. If you qualify, you will be playing in the Final on Sunday 22nd February – so please ensure that you are free on that date before entering the qualifier. Last year 14 pairs went through to the Final, but the exact number may depend on how many pairs enter the qualifier.

Whilst we would like as many entries as possible, numbers are restricted by the capacity of the venue, so it is safer to get your entry in early.

Again, depending on numbers, the top three pairs from the Final will have the right to represent Wiltshire at the Corwen Trophy on 30-31 May.

The entry fee is £10, including the usual splendid tea, and is collected on the day.

Corsham Pairs Result

34 pairs fought it out on a chilly Sunday 12th October in the newly refurbished Springfield Leisure Centre (which was splendid except that the lofty windows kept auto-opening just as a reasonable room temperature was reached). Congratulations go to the winners, Ambrose Holmes-Mackie & James Green. David Birkinshaw & Steve Stafford and Christine & Richard Moore were in 2nd and 3rd places respectively.

Before play started, tribute was paid to Esme Sidery, long-time Secretary of Corsham BC, who sadly died last week. Our thanks to Corsham BC for hosting the event and providing a splendid and abundant tea at half time.

European Youth Pairs Championship

Ambrose and Ankush didn't qualify for the Pairs Final, but achieved 70.33% in the first round of the Consolation Pairs. In that event they finished 16th out of 92, with a score of 56.38%.

Two other Wiltshire players, Bath BC members Will Roper and Mathew Jones, came 12th in the same event, scoring 58.11%.
