Saturday 19th August 2023 will see both the ladies and men’s pairs lawn bowls championship finals be played at Onchan Pleasure Park. This year’s ladies event will see the new pairing of Lorraine Widdowson, who is enjoying her first season on the Island, team up with Joanne Kelly, who has quickly adapted her crown green game since joining last year to become a formidable opponent on the flat surface. They will face the experienced pair of Karen Slack and Bernice McGreal, the reigning champions. Meanwhile the men’s final will feature Gary Lenton with substitute partner Dave Ball, against former champions Clive & Mark McGreal, who will be keen to regain the title following not competing together last summer whilst Mark took a sabbatical from the sport. The matches are scheduled to start at 13:30.
