ALGARVE BOWLS SUMMER LEAGUE FINAL DAY THURSDAY 5th JULY 2018

An exciting but often very tense finals day saw Balaia going into the last game of the summer season with a five point advantage over nearest rivals Pedras Panthers.  Six points would given Balaia their first trophy, but it was not to be. Although Panthers dropped a set and tied another, but despite best efforts Balaia gained only two points from one set won. Thus the teams finished level on 47 points. Panthers took the title on shots difference across the season.  Nevertheless our players can be proud of what they achieved. Now for the winter season! Final League table here.

There is a selection pictures from the day here - will open in a new window or tab. Click each picture to see it in a larger size. if anyone wants the massive full sized version of any of them, send the picture number (eg 001, 002) to me webmaster@balaiabowls.org and I will send it to you. They are around 9Mb in size or 18 megapixels.
