Ladies Match Secretary's Report

Season 2020/21

With 8 matches in the season, these matches are held at good venue’s and are very enjoyable. Sadly in recent times the number of members attending these matches has dwindled and the Committee would like to advertise these events to all Female members to attend either at the Ladies Matches or with your Partner at the Mixed Pairs Matches.

To book a place at these Matches, details of which are all shown on the 2019/2020 fixture list in your handbook, or for any queries please call Nick Mitchell on 07970 606558

Attendance to these matches would be greatly appreciated and would help save the events from cancellation.


Straits Mill 22 August 2020

We had five Ladies attending this match, which was great to see and we filled the small lake together with the Junior members. Onwards and upwards but we would still welcome more Ladies to attend these Matches.  The results of the match were as follows: 

Mel                                                                        15lb 1oz

Wendy                                                                 6lb 9oz

Alison                                                                    6lb 7oz

Kathy                                                                    3lb 8oz

Michelle                                                               3lb 1oz 

Special well done to Mel, this was her first match of the season and after coming back to the UK from Bulgaria and completing her quarantine, she wins.  Well done Mel

Kathy Chisnall & Nick Mitchell                     10lb 11oz

Wendy and Alan Upson                                 7lb 8oz
