Disability Bowls England – Regional Inter Club Triples match – 30 March 2019

Disability Bowls England, DBE, organised five regional inter club triples competitions on 30th March 2019 for disabled registered bowlers. The local competition was held at Loddon Vale IBC, Basingstoke and four clubs entered.

Leatherhead IBC played three teams, Swans A – C. Riverside IBC (Winchester), North Wilts IBC (Chippenham) and Swindon Manor IBC entered one team each.

The competition was held as a round-robin over five games.
After the fourth game, the situation was, Riverside and North Wilts had both won three and drawn 1 giving them seven points and a shot difference of plus 26 each. Swindon Manor was in third place, with two wins, one draw and a loss for five points and a shot difference of plus 16.
In the fifth and final round, Riverside played North Wilts. This was a tough game and after five ends the score was North Wilts 5 Riverside 1. So North Wilts were the champions.
However, Swindon Manor then won their last game 14 to 0. This meant there was now a tie for second place but Swindon Manor now had a shot difference of plus 30 and Riverside plus 22, and therefore Swindon Manor were the runners up.
