2018 - August Waterside Ladies Reach National Fours Finals At Leamington. 

Ladies National Fours 

Waterside Bowlers performed again by reaching the Ladies National Fours Finals at Leamington Spa on the 6th August. 

They lined up against a team from Huntingdonshire and a really tight game ensued. we went into an early lead but an unfortunate 5 at about end 8 put the scores very even. From that point on it was nip and tuck until the 21st end when Waterside , who were 2 down managed a super two to go into an extra end. 

Unfortunately it was not to be and our girls lost out on the extra end. It must be said however they acquitted themselves brilliantly and the club is very proud of their achievement. Well done Ladies.  A few photos from the day below.

Janet Ballard is scheduled to play in two Singles classes from the 9th August onwards and I'll let you know progress.
