A great night (albeit with some rain) to be playing in the bowls evening league.

Mirror, mirror…is the bowl in or out?

A great day of bowls at the start of the Ember Coronation Triples, with a warm welcome to our visiting teams for the day; Esher, Mid Surrey, Furzedown and Met. Police.
We even had cause to break out the umpire’s box, with Ken Homewood teaching us the finer arts of making sure a shot was within the green boundary using the bowls mirror!

Bowls: Surrey vs. Hampshire in the County Fours

Ember’s very own Hazel Gater played her first match for Surrey on Thursday, a friendly against Hampshire, along with Val Chicken.  She had a great game with several touchers (as can be seen in the pictures below!). Zoe Hollins is the SCWBA President in the photos, along with five of the Ember ladies.

Jubilee Cup

The successful run in this prestigious competition ended when the Ember rinks came up against Cuddington in the quarter-final. Having done so well to be level pegging with two ends to go the match finally went in favour of the opposition. Well done to all who played in the various rounds and many thanks to Ray Croucher for organising and captaining the matches.
