Inaugural Chiang Mai Challenge in Lawn Bowls held last week

Coco Club of Pattaya took the inaugural Chiang Mai Challenge Lawn Bowls trophy with a win of 14 -11 over Chiang Mai.

Coco Club of Pattaya was pleased to be invited to the inaugural Chiang Mai Challenge at Don Bishop's Non Kai lawn bowling green following their one million plus baht new carpet from New Zealand was laid.
The club’s first inter club tournament was a great success as the team was able to adjust to the new AstroTurf surface very quickly - the mark of true champion bowlers. The first day resulted in Coco winning 2 of the 3 triples matches and included some amazing last bowl saves by skip Sue Bryant. It is no wonder that she is Thai Women's Champion. In the 1st of the singles, honors were shared equally with 2 matches each. On day 2, Coco clinched the tournament by winning 3 of the 4 pairs matches. Chiang Mai made a good showing in the final singles winning all 4 matches, but alas too late. Overall an excellent result for Chiang Mai and all the hours of practice really paid off. Derek and Sue from Coco hope to invite Chiang Mai for a return match within the next 6 months.
The final score was Coco 14 points and Chiang Mai 11 points. Coco won all the special prizes with Peter, Lita and Allan winning the highest aggregate score for the triples, Ric and Michael winning the pairs prize and Sue winning the highest singles aggregate.
