CONGRATULATIONS!  Aussie Pairs Champions – DEREK ELDON (Teide) AND GREG SPERRING (BBC). (Greg came in on the last day as substitute for Lynne Eldon. We wish Lynne better health very soon).

The runners up were Velia Wood (Javea) and Trevor Evans. (BBC)

36 Teams played a round robin  over 3 days with the 6 Group winners and 2 best Runners up going forward to the knockout quarter final, semi final and final.

There was some excellent bowls played in a competitive but friendly spirit.

On behalf of all the competitors Derek Eldon thanked El Cid Bowls Club for running a well organised and superb 3 day competition. The teams represented came from six clubs, El Cid, BBC, Javea Green, Bonalba, Vistabella and special mention to 6 teams from Horadada. Over 40 stayed and enjoyed some free tapas after the presentation of the Aussie Pairs Trophy and prizes by Andrew Walkerdine from Home Espana.

Thanks to the Sara and Charlie and Staff at El Cid for excellent food, drink and service over the 3 days. Finally, Thank you so much to our new sponsors, Home Espana, for their generous support.
