All of the games were well-fought and everyone appeared to enjoy the event.  Thanks to Marilyn who helped to set out the three lawns and took in all of the hoops at the end of play. She also provided the drinks throughout the afternoon.  Afternoon tea was enjoyed by the competitors and the timekeeper.  Of course only the finest china crockery was used befitting the event!  Rachel was presented with The Perry Bowl by Eileen, last year’s winner. Our visiting timekeeper John Sewell was also the “official photographer".




The Ladies Day Competition was played on Sunday 17th June in an oasis of fine weather.  Disappointingly only five ladies had entered the competition: three from Ashby and two from Market Bosworth. However we had a very enjoyable afternoon. Afternoon tea was taken after the first two games, when we were joined by Arthur, Barrie and Dave. The final two games were contested fiercely as any one of three players could win.  Eileen was victorious with Rachel a close second and Judith an admirable third.


It was nice to have two visiting players who said that they had enjoyed the whole experience as they usually only play at their own club.


Rachel, last years winner, presented "The Perry Bowl" to Eileen.



Eileen ( 3) won 4

Rachel (0) won 3

Judith (5)  won 2

Ann (6)     won 1

Shirley (6) won 0

The Ladies’ Day Golf Handicap fielded 8 players. It was lovely to see Jayne Penn-Davis and Sue Nickson, also to welcome Ayako King and Judith Rowe. Chris Mounfield, Marilyn Murray, Rachel Rowe, and Eileen Buxton were the other member-players. We played 5 rounds of 13 points, 25-minute games. Rachel was the overall winner with 5 wins with Eileen in second place with 4 wins and Jayne third on 3 wins. We had an enjoyable afternoon of play in glorious weather.


Our thanks go to Tim King for setting the hoops, Geoffrey Ellott for time keeping, and Ray Mounfield for white-lining. Dave Davies, Barrie March and Sheila Shepherd, (a new member) visited during the afternoon. It was nice to see them. Eileen managed the competition.


The King children played happily, Aidan especially enjoying the bucket of water!  (Report by Eileen)
