On 28th July 2018 Winchelsea Bowls Club came 1st and 2nd at the Open Triples Rye Bowls Club tournament.
It’s the first time this has happened for Winchelsea. The winners Mike Melvin, Jo Melvin and Geoff Read just beat the second team Paul Trigg, Keith Sellens and Jeannette Read by 1 point on the last end. The Club and the Club Captain are very proud of the achievements of the members bearing in mind the Club is one of the smallest around.
In the Cinque Ports Tournament on the 4th and 5th of August at Sandwich the following weekend, Winchelsea came lower down the leader board compared with last year’s result of second place – it was only 3 lost games out of 11 which made the difference. Margate were again the winners for the second year running.
