BOWLING CLUB: Last Sunday Barcombe hosted the Invitation Triples Competition. This annual event is one of the highlights of the year for the club when we re-new friendship with other clubs taking part. Twelve teams of three people enter the competition and are divided into two groups yellow and blue, in each group players play each other in a round robin game. The winning team from each colour group then played in the final. This year it was the Lewes Rooks team versus the Cross in Hand team in the final game of three ends. The winner’s trophy went to the Lewes Rooks, therefore the runners up trophy was handed to the Cross in Hand team. The presentation to the teams was made by Muriel Pyne, the President of Barcombe Club. All teams remarked on how well the green played. A delicious lunch was prepared and served by members of the club with tea and cake in the afternoon which was appreciated by everyone. It was a day enjoyed by all who took part and it also helped to increase the club funds.
