Ann Betts of Brentwood Bowling Club has won the Essex ladies’ A2 area singles competition with an eight-shot victory over her opponent.
The final against Angela Ings of Aveley was played on a neutral green at Rainham on Sunday 13th July when Ann got off to a strong start, with nine shots on the scoreboard before her opponent opened her account.
Despite heavy overnight rain, the Brentwood challenger mastered the green from the outset and overcame a temporary stall on 13 to maintain her lead throughout, finishing 21 – 13.
She will now go on to compete for the county title against unbadged players from the other seven areas.
The A2 competition attracted entries from nine clubs – Aveley, Brentwood, Clockhouse (Upminster), Drums (Grays), Haynes Park (Hornchurch), Kings Chase (Brentwood), Liberty of Havering, Thurrock, and Warley Hill (Brentwood).
