Clinica Dental Puchol sponsored Fred Harris, Ten End, Mixed Pairs competition at Benitachell Bowls Club, which was hotly contested by 24 teams from various clubs around the Costa Blanca.

After three days of excellent bowling, and, with a few unexpected twists on the way, Friday afternoon saw the four group winners Angie and Dave Bouttell, Feli Croft and Terry Corner, Carol and Dudley Davies and Gail Chick and Greg Sperring contest the Semi-Finals.

In on-off showery conditions the Final was then played between Dudley and Carol Davies and Greg Sperring and Gail Chick.

The spectators were treated to a final worth waiting for as Dudley and Carol got off to what seemed to be an unassailable lead at 9 - 0. This was a game of two halves, Gail and Greg pulled back to 9 - 5 with one end to go. With some great Bowls from Gail and Greg on the last end they got the four shots needed for a draw and took the match to an extra end.

Carol and Dudley must have thought they had the match won when holding match lie with Greg having only one bowl left, but a brilliant drawing bowl by Greg saw Gail and Greg win the best final this competition has ever seen.

In a packed clubhouse, Vicky from Clinica Dental Puchol made the presentations of prizes to all the winners, joining every-one for Tapas and drinks after. An excellent three days of bowling which even the weather on Friday could not dampen.
