Park off to a good start

A FLYING start to the bowls season saw Matlock Park Bowls Club gain two impressive wins in their opening matches.

On Thursday in the Charity Thompson Hospital Cup, a win gave the Park a next round tie against Villacroft.

The first home game for the Saturday team saw the home team drop only five points to the visitors.

With the club now fielding ten teams weekly, new members would be made welcome. Later in the season, the club hopes to announce details of trial sessions for newcomers of all age groups.

Results for week ended March 31 were:

Thompson Hospital Cup

Matlock Park 100
