Chatwin takes Coco Lawn Bowls Club singles title


The Coco Club, located near Phoenix Golf Club, held its first singles title campaign recently with 28 competitors taking part in 90 matches on the weekend of 21st and 22nd June.  Those competing came from Australia, England, Thailand, and Holland and with 22,000 baht at stake it was all to play for.

The four league system, where everyone had 6 matches, produced only one player with maximum points – Yung from RBSC Bangkok – closely followed by Num, Go, Darren, Bus and Coco’s own Sue, who were all unbeaten in five games.  So it came down to the semi finals with Go winning against Num 9–7 and Darren Chatwin prevailing against Yung 13-5.

The 3rd and 4th place play-off was decided to be a share so everyone could watch the final where Darren from Caldwell in Derbyshire – with what appeared to be no nerves at all – held on to take it 11-1, with the last two ends conceded as Go could not catch up.  Well played to all who took part and especially our new champion, Darren.

Coco Club is always looking for new players with free coaching and tuition.  Call Sue on 087 135 8357 for more information.
