Bankia 2013



Benitachell Bowls Club hosted the 2013 Bankia Open in near perfect conditions for bowling. Twenty teams representing clubs from across the Northern Costa Blanca battled it out over two very competitive days of high quality bowling to claim the honours. The outcome of this prestigious Bankia sponsored competition wasn’t settled until of the final session of Day 2, with five teams still in contention. A fitting climax to two fantastic days bowling saw Team C2, Mike & Feli Croft and David Poole claim first prize, with Team E2, Maggie Lawley and Derek & Lynn Eldon, worthy runners up. Third place went to Team A2, Mike & Linda Smith and Malcolm Sprawson, followed by Fourth placed Team D4, Jeff & Linda Richards and Mick Adams.


Brian Doggett, BBC President, thanked all those who had been working hard behind the scenes to make the competition such a success and in particular he thanked our sponsors, Julio Rodriguez-Acha Collado & Juan Ortola of Bankia for their continued support, which was greatly appreciated by the Board and members of BBC and all those participating in this year’s competition.
