SALLY Batt’s brilliant comeback from 17-4 down to beat Gill Mitchell 21-17 in the ladies’ singles was the standout moment at Lyme Regis Bowls Club’s 62nd Open Tournament.

The club were blessed with fine weather for the finals, tempting a reasonable turnout to view from the sidelines.

The men’s singles was a close encounter between Lyme bowlers Carl Stephens and Paul Pomeroy.

After a nip and tuck game Pomeroy got over the line with a 21-15 victory.

The pairs was won by Carl Stephens and Angie Thompson over Alan and Pam Weech in another closely-fought encounter.

The only runaway victory came in the triples when the fancied trio of Gill Mitchell, Carl Stephens and Angie Thompson were out-bowled by the Angove family comprising father and sons.

President Pat Cole thanked the club’s sponsor A J Wakely and Sons, represented on the day by Mr Simon Wakely.

Cole also thanked the catering team under the leadership of Avril Sherring, bar manager Barry Rattenbury and his team, the green staff under Philip Stephens, Sue Rowe and her team for running the tournament and Erica Sarson for running the raffle.
