3 min read

This is Frank's 2nd major victory in just over 6 months

Following his great win in the Valencian Championships, Emerald Isle’s Frank Close continued his winning ways by taking the Men’s Singles title at his home club, beating Roy Mercer of Monte Mar 21-16. In The Ladies Singles, Ann Marie Stevenson, representing Vistabella Club, beat Mel Highland of Quesada.

National Champions Keith and June Jones failed in their bid for the Mixed Pairs title this year, losing in an early round to a team from Country Bowls. The title went to John and Jill Albutt who overcame Carl and Ann Eagle in an extra-end decider.

This year Calpe’s small club were represented and reached the semi-final of the Mixed Rinks. That final was played out by the team of Mel and Colin Highland, Peta Rhodes and President John Muldoon of Quesada who fell to L and D Eldon, P Wardrop and Y Briden from El Cid club in a close-fought final.

Mel Highland, who reached three finals, teamed up with newcomer to Quesada, Jaqui Johnston, in the Ladies Pairs but lost to D Lane and S Thompson of Finca Guila by one shot. In the Men’s Pairs Keith Jones and Mal Hughes of San Luis club had a convincing victory over the Mazzaron Team of A Benton and M Chambers.

Keith’s team also won the Mixed Triples when he was joined by June and Colin Jackson. They beat El Cid’s team of the Eldons playing with Yvonne Bryden, 32-25.

President Jean Cooper presented the trophies and thanked the host club and the many spectators who enjoyed a feast of good bowling under a clear blue sky.
