THE 2017 Triples champions are Henry Wilson, Peter Deacon and Jim Deacon in a very keenly contested final, with their opposition being Keith Hampton, Rod (Pickles) Bradley and Geoff Hillier.

As you would expect this was a very close game from start to finish, but in the end Henry, Peter and Jim finished a little too strong to win the title 18-14. Great win fellas.

Social bowls Friday S Leggett, Rocky and G Snape held a 15-7 lead at the halfway mark against R Hillier, Ginger and G Hillier and were just too strong in the finish winning 23-18.

Another close game saw S Stanton, J White and A Small shoot to a handy 16-3 lead after eight ends and looked in control but as usually happens their opposition K Hampton, P Cockram and P Hoang put a few ends together to have the score 20-all with one end to play.

Steve, Jim and Alan recorded one shot on the last to win 22-21.
