2022 Handicap Pairs Championship Final

This was a great final between the best two Handicap Pairs teams for 2022. We had a previous winner of this popular event, Glenn Simington playing with Grant Ambrose Vs 'new kids on the block' Peter Benfield in his first UBMBC Championship playing with fellow Championship rookie, Martin O'Malley, on a very tricky rink.
Peter & Martin got out to an early lead, Grant & Simo came back, but Peter & Martin held their nerve and hung onto win the UBMBC 2022 Handicap Pairs Championship.
Congratulations to all four players on reaching the final.

2022 Veteran Singles Championship


Allan Rhodes and Peter Springett played in the Final of the 2022 Veteran Singles Championship. The gusty wind was very strong and made standing on the mat very hard. It was impossible to control the bowl consistently. Despite that, there were some great bowls played and the game came down to a nail biting finish.
Congratulations to Allan on drawing the winning shot on his less fancied hand, to sneak inside the shot bowl, to win the Championship 21 - 19.

2022 Mixed Pairs Championship Final


What a great final this was. Katie Brown & Don Stephens got out to an early lead. Yvonne Gordon & Shane Waddell (last year's champions) came back strongly and then Katie & Don pulled away again. Congratulations to Katie & Don and commiserations to Yvonne Gordon & Shane Waddell.


2022 Veteran Pairs Championship Final


This was always going to be a great game. Terry Brown & Peter Springett got out to an early lead over Barry Gilmour & George Boni. Barry & George came back, but Terry & Peter kept their noses in front for the entire game. There were some great bowls played and a few of those 'others', on a tricky green, in blustery conditions.
