2017-18 Competition

The 2017-18 competition was held on Saturday 25 November 2017 at Ross Bowling Club with 24 pairs competing initially in 8 round robin groups. The high number of entrants necessitated a slightly amended format so the group stage was 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 4 different clubs still had representatives in the main competition but Terry Darrington & Rita Hancock (Aston Ingham) went on to defeat Merion Attwood & Colin Smith (Lea) in the final. The Plate competition was also won by an Aston Ingham pairing, Dean Rudman & Terry Griffiths, who defeated the defending plate holders George Marshall (Ross) and David Millington Jones (Woolhope) in the final.
