Wadebridge became Group 2 Champions in the Mixed Triples and Men’s Top Team last week.

Mixed Triple 1

On Tuesday 8th August, the Mixed Triple of Alison Tapley, Harry Tinker and George Tinker beat a Bodmin triple 22-12 in the Group final. It was a close thing for most of the match, but then they pulled away, scoring a 5 en route to a lead of 21-9 after 15 ends, which they held onto comfortably. The next round (County semi-final) is on Friday 22nd September

Wadebridge Men’s Top Team beat Stratton on Friday 11th in the Group final, which Wadebridge last won in 2016.

David Grant got the team off to a great start, winning the 2-wood singles. This was followed by a 23-15 win in the fours for Kevin Jones, Paul Evans, Trevor Little and Richard Jones (skip). Celebrations were muted as Peter Morrish and Harry Tinker lost narrowly in the pairs, after at least 2 dead ends, and just failing to obtain yet another extra end. But the triple of Derek Swaby, John Gibbs and Roger Priestley, who had trailed for most of the game, scored 2 shots on the last end for a 15-13 win, securing the overall match. Stratton’s Alan Seth then conceded to George Tinker in what had been an outstanding game of 4 wood singles.

This takes Wadebridge through to the County semi-final against Stenalees on Sunday 3rd September at Cambourne, and a possible final in the afternoon at Bickford Smith.

Top Team 2

Top Team 3

On the 7/8th August Wadebridge Ladies hosted Group 2 versus Group 3 of the Whyte Rickard county inter-club competition. Alison Tapley, Pat Archer, Barbara Swaby and Mae Bargate won through on Day One beating Bodmin in the first round and Looe in the second round. This took them into the quarter finals against Bude on the second day where, after a very closely fought match, they were narrowly beaten by 16-13. Well played ladies! Bude ladies go on to represent Group 2 in the county semi final on 6th September.

The Men’s B Team had reached the semi-final of the Jimmy Hopper trophy, but on Wednesday 9th came up against a strong Torpoint side where one rink in particular was in sparkling form. We lost 36-66.
