BOWLING CLUB: Two matches were played last week. The midweek game on Wednesday produced a win on two rinks and a loss on the other two rinks resulting in a total score of Barcombe 52 and Maresfield 67. As the Saturday game started the rain came down. We continued the game until the sixth end when it was decided to take an early tea break, after which it was agreed to continue the game in the drizzle. The end result was a win for Saltdean 71 Barcombe 52.

STOOLBALL: The storm started three-quarters of the way through our home re-arranged match with Ditchling (July 18) and, once again, had to be postponed. The weather was kinder on our away match to Laughton (July 20) who, this year, have joined the Mid Division league. Barcombe won the match.
