2021 – Open competitions at Victoria Park BC

This last week would have seen the Southport Flower Show at Victoria Park but sadly for the second year running this was not possible. The Bowling Festival during the SFS has been a huge event for the club for very many years. We hope the Southport Flower Show will return in  2022. The dates are already announced – 18th to 21st August.

This year we held Open BCGBA Competitions on Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 August.

This gave us a fantastic weekend of bowling at Victoria Park.

Firstly on Saturday Lynn Bennett and Frank Ball from Wigan beat Pat Edwards and Peter Sinclair, also from Wigan in the final of the mixed pairs open.  The consolation final was won by Sheila Speed and Fred Anderton from Wigan against Jean Mayor and Gary Burgess.

On Sunday Andrew Draper beat Alan Hodson Snr in the final of the  Open singles.(Members will recall that Andy’s father Tommy Draper, a stalwart club member, previously  organised the Southport Flower Show Competitions)

The consolation was won by Sharon Rigden against Neil Rigden.

VPBC is again very grateful for Mark & Jayne’s skill and hard work in running things so smoothly; and for Sue and her team of volunteers for providing food and drink and running the popular Tombola table.
