TS5C was proud to support VIBE (Visually Impaired Bowls England) on their trip to the World Blind Bowls Championships - Cape Town, South Africa
This report was from Tessa Furzeman
"The opposition was tough especially as it was my first time at such high level bowls. I won two games – beating Canada and Scotland and only losing to Israel by one shot (20-21) after playing for over three hours. In the six Mixed pairs games, my partner, Steven Simmons and I beat Australia and again lost to Israel by 1 shot (12-13) after playing for “full time”. We were beaten by South Africa, Canada, and New Zealand and Scotland conceded due to illness.
Sarah Marshall our B1 (Totally Blind) Lady won a Gold Medal, Maureen Ryan our B2 Lady won a Bronze Medal and Maureen together with Ron Homer won Bronze in the B2 Mixed Pairs.
The Final Results were – Gold – South Africa, Silver – Australia, Bronze – Israel. England were 2 points behind Israel gaining 4th place."
