Meet our hot shot trio

Three players from Brentwood Bowling Club are celebrating after scoring a hot shot … during a TRIPLES game.

At the after-match tea, they were congratulated by their captain-for-the-day Richard Rose who stressed: “It’s not easy to get a hot shot at triples.”

Trevor Pedley, Marina Thorne and Geoff Byatt were representing their club in a friendly against Clacton on Friday 10th July when they scored the maximum nine shots on the fifth end.

The trio are now eligible to join the ranks of the elite Hot Shots Club which is managed by Bowls International magazine and they qualify for individual certificates and badges to mark their achievement.

It was also a good day for Brentwood ladies’ captain Margaret Rayment and fellow team players Paul Harrison and Kath Jolly who beat their opposition by 15 shots to earn their club’s winning rink prizes.
