2018-19 Competition

The 2018-19 competition was held on Sunday 3 February 2019 at Ross Bowling Club with 24 pairs competing initially in 8 round robin groups. The high number of entrants, for the second year running, necessitated a format comprising a group stage followed by the main competition knockout for the top 16 teams and a plate knockout competition for the remaining 8 teams. By the semi-final stage 5 different clubs still had representatives in the main competition but John Mills (Woolhope) & Joe Loveys (Gorsley Chapel) went on to defeat Sheila Whittingham & Peter Wright (Larruperz) in the final. The Plate competition was won by a Gorsley Chapel pairing, Les Barlow & Dean Rudman, who defeated Sue Dix & Pam Park (Ross) in the final.
