Harpenden Bowls Club snared two titles at the St Albans & District Bowling Association ladies’ finals day.

A tightly contested all-Harpenden affair in the Australian Pairs, saw Val Christiaans and Dena Roberts overcome Janet Hubball and Linda Newby, by a win and a draw in sets.

And there was an exciting end to the Pairs final as Newby and Linda Brookes overcame their Hatfield opponents 32-22.

At one time they trailed 18-13 but 12 shots gained over the last two ends allowed them to power to victory.

Lesley Tutt came up against an in-form Judy West from Harperbury BC in the Championship Singles.
