The Kendal and District Bowling League began on Sunday 3rd April with the third annual FMB sponsored Super 32 competition, hosted by Burneside Bowing Club. The 32 invited players had been selected from their successes in 2015 across all divisions of the KDBL - and they did not disappoint! With the sun shining there were excellent matches from the start. Two of note were Steve Carruthers Windermere A seeded 7 against fellow club mate Chris West Windermere C - last year’s Division Five merit winner, Steve just pulling away at the end of the match 21:19. Also Andrew Atkinson Staveley A Division Two merit place against Ian Nicholson Victoria A and number 1 seed. Andrew played some excellent bowls ending up losing 18:21 against the more experience Ian.

The standard of bowling did not diminish all through the day, culminating in excellent semi-finals. Dan Varcoe Holme A seeded 3 against Martin Gilpin Victoria A seeded 2; the game went to the last end with Dan Varcoe just pinching the last point. Similarly, Mark Ashburn Holme A seeded 4 played James Dennison Levens A seeded 9 battling to the end, just a couple of doubles in the middle of the game separated these two. In the end, Mark won 21:19.

After such intense semi-finals, the players did not fail to produce more fine form in the final. With both finalists being teammates at Holme A the final proceeded to be a nip and tuck affair with the lead changing hands many times. However, Mark managed to edge away in the last couple of ends to win 21:18.

Thanks were given to Burneside Bowling Club for hosting the event and to FMB, who sponsor the event. Another excellent start to the Kendal and District Bowling League season with league matches due to start on Tuesday 5th.
