This past week the Lyme Regis Bowling Club men's championship side were resting while the second team should have won against Sherborne but lost the game in the last few ends.
The ladies have yet to win, going down to Dorchester 34-40 in the Dorset Division One league.
One high spot of the week was the men overcoming Wellworthy in the Top Club competition. Paul Pomeroy and Carl Stephens got off to a good start, winning both the singles comfortably. The pairs and fours also won, giving Lyme a 4-1 win over the five disciplines.
Lyme continue to struggle in the friendlies, going down to Chardstock and Yeovil VIP. A good number of our more experienced players are heavily involved in county games and will, no doubt, be more available for friendlies later in the season.
