Girl power on show in lawn bowls final


The Pattaya based Coco Club held its lawn bowls pairs tournament finals weekend of September 20-21.  Two divisions were created for all teams to play at least 5 qualifying games to decide who would proceed to the finals.  

In Division A it was Bangkok’s Buzz and Go who were flying with 5 wins from 5 games, including wins over probably four of the top six lady bowlers in Thailand – Lek and Thanom 20-4 and Thong and Yupa 14-8.  Division B was closer with Coco’s Sue off to a flyer of 4 from 4 until meeting Num for a 14-8 defeat and Frank and Bank coming good after slow starts.

The semi-finals drew Buzz and Lek again but this time it was a real game with Lek gaining her revenge and Thong overcoming Sue to set up an all girls final.  But after their very slow start it was Lek and Thanom – the current ladies 1 and 2 in Thailand – who overcame previous champions Thong and Yupa to show all the boys the way home.

The weekend’s bowls was followed by a buffet and super sing song – most probably helped by the 20,000 baht prize money.
