PEDRAS PLAYERS WIN BA CHAMPIONSHIPS
Congratulations to Elizabeth Harris, Thea Tushuizen, Peter Harris and Phil King who are the Bowls Algarve Mixed Fours Champions for 2018/19. They played their final at Valverde on Wednesday 13th March against Gerry and Susan Kinane, Richard Fribbins and Carol Williams from Floresta. The scores were level after eighteen ends so an extra end was needed which the Pedras four won by one shot.
ALEX MARSHALL MBE AT PEDRAS
On a glorious Sunday morning in early February David Reilly succeeded in something that he had been attempting to arrange for some while; he brought Alex Marshall, one of the very best bowlers in the world, to Pedras. Alex has a string of World, Commonwealth Games and other titles to his credit and has also been honoured by the Queen for his services to the sport.
Alex played a pairs match, partnering Peter Harris against David Reilly and Brian Holt. Peter offered his thoughts on the experience:
Whether you're an experienced bowler or a first time enthusiast, a "local" or a visitor on holiday, you'll find a warm welcome at Pedras Lawn Bowls Club in Cabanas.
