Mens Two Woods
Men’s Senior Fours
(15/5) Having received a bye in the first round, our four of Les Smith, Mick Kerbey, Granville Spencer and John O’Driscoll travelled to Chertsey in round 2. A heavy green proved to be a challenge and they were defeated.
The first round of this competition saw Les Smith receive a "bye" and, due to illness, sadly Phil Thomas had to give his opponent a "walkover".
On the evening of the second round a tense Les Smith was preparing to meet his opposition when a telephone call was received to say that his opponent was unable to make it and he therefore was given a "walkover". Les is now preparing to meet Daniel Capon from North Sheen on Friday 23rd. Good luck Les!
A close game between the two competitors, with some excellent bowling but sadly Les was just pipped at the post, better luck next time Les!
Phil Thomas, due to illness, was again reluctantly forced to concede this first round to his opponents. Meanwhile Les Smith and Mike Kerbey received a "bye". Drawn against a pair from West Wimbledon in the second round, Les and Mick were unable to win through on this occasion and were defeated by their opposition.
A "bye" in the first round for Les Smith & Co. Round two they were drawn against a triple from Chessington resulting in a win. Next up they tackle George Clarke's team from Southey on Tuesday 20th June - good luck boys!
Great win against Southey sees Les & Co through to the next round away against West Wimbledon. Up against Russell Smith, Alan Harding and their lead Ray. Our chaps, Mick Kerbey, Granville and Les Smith battled hard but the opposition were on fire. Not to be today boys, bad luck boys!
Men's Unbadged Singles
Three Malden Manor competitors in the running with all three receiving "byes" in the first round. Phil Thomas, due to illness, again sadly had to concede his game to his opponent. John O'Driscoll was drawn against a Putney Town player who, unfortunately proved too strong for John - commiserations. Les Smith however emerged victorious against his opposition from Southey. Round three saw Les drawn against another Southey player who he also defeated. In the fourth round Les was unable to maintain his success and sadly was defeated by yet another Southey player!

Two Malden Manor entrants in this competition. Wendy Dunne received a "bye" in the first round and Lorna Hunter a "walkover". In the second round both were unfortunately defeated. Wendy by her opponent from Ember and Lorna by her opponent from Chessington. Better luck next time girls!
Ladies’ Two Woods
The opening stage of the Area 2 competition will be hosted by Malden Manor on Sunday 2nd July. Why not come along and see some great bowling?
Ladies’ Officers Cup
Malden Manor had three entries in this competition and, would you believe it, two competitors were drawn out against each other in the first round. Liz Pope and Lorna Hunter took to the green to commence battle on the morning of 3rd May but with the green having been open for play for less than a fortnight and so early in the season it's a "big ask" to expect us ladies to have built our muscles up already! This proved a little too challenging for Liz who gracefully conceded the game to Lorna. Lorna is home to her next opponent Sue Blessett from Chertsey B.C. Wendy Dunne received a bye in the first round and is away in the second round to Thelma Vinson of Chertsey B.C.
In this next round Wendy was defeated by Thelma. However, Malden Manor's hopes remained alive when Lorna won her second round. Now through to the semi final stage Lorna was next up against a lady from Carshalton. She emerged victorious and is now through to the semi finals. Get the date in your diaries – Sunday 23rd July at Sutton B.C. – support our Ladies Captain! Well done Lorna!
Lorna took her place at the SCWBA Finals Day on 6th August in the Officers Cup. The match was very close run, but Lorna was just edged out 19-21.
Lorna played a super game against tough opposition from Egham but sadly not quite enough this time - unlucky Lorna.
(20/5) Victory for Lorna Hunter and Granville Spencer in round 1 over a pair from North Sheen. In round 2 they will play a pair from Egham, yet to be decided. (28/5) Sadly a defeat for Wendy Dunne and Mick Kerbey in round 1 against another Egham pair.
Lorna and Granville again emerged victorious against the Egham pair and now await confirmation of their next opponents in round three. Good luck!
Drawn at home against another Egham pair Granville and Lorna yet again did the business! Next up sees them away this time to yet another Egham pair. Go get ‘em you two you’re on a roll now!
Having won their 5th round match against yet another pair from Egham, Lorna and Granville came up against Tony Doyle and his partner from Ewell Village. Another near thing, but unfortunately they lost 11-14.
