Disability Bowls

On Saturday the 14th March, at Honiton Bowling Club, Disability Bowls England, held their inter-club triples competition. Dunheved Bowling Club, sent a triple to take part, Dave Bowyer, Troy Hair, Fred Bramham. This year Dunheved was the only Cornish Triple to take part, the first time in the club’s history. Clubs also attending were 3 Teams from Plymouth Life Centre, 2 Teams from Taunton Dean I B C, Honiton I B C, Dawlish B C.

Bowls England Organiser Mo Monkton, said this was a very successful event, in challenging times, and all at Honiton should be applauded for the extra work involved, especially during the Coronavirus situation. Dunheved triple enjoyed the day immensely, against very strong opposition, and are looking forward to next year. Angela Wooldridge, Club Coach, and Peter Prynne assisted during the games. One thing is for certain seeing people from a wide range of disabilities, enjoying themselves, was quite heartening.
