Dear Team Members, this is the line-up for the last six games of the season.

If you are unable to play, or wish to swop with a reserve, then please do so, but let me know before the game. I hope you have enjoyed the games and are now better prepared for the summer season.

Topsham Bowling Club Winter Bowls 2018/19

Excellent result today well done Topsham!  Topsham lost 49-63 .. Congratulations to Jeff’s team who lost 10-11 .. just one point well done!!! My sincere thanks to Honiton who managed to get a player to make up one of our triples.  We extend our good wishes for a speedy recover to Mick Mills who had to drop out at the last moment and is now home from hospital recovering from a virus infection.   

Captain of the Day was Jose, thank you once again.

The next game at Dawlish on the 24th Feb.  

Here are the results of the Madeira Game.  Topsham 37 Madeira 66.  Les Baker’s rink made excellent progress today and felt cheated losing 13-17, had the two extra ends been played that could have been a winning rink for Topsham.

The next game is at Honiton on Sat 16-2-19 with Jose Northey as Captain of the Day.

Dear team

In respect of the funeral of Maurice Brooks on the 8th Feb I have cancelled the Budleigh game.  Budleigh have been informed.

John Thompson

Fantastic result, Topsham lost 53 - 62 to Dawlish.  Congratulations to Barbara B (21-15) & John B (19-16) who were skips on the two winning rinks.  Once again the team was let down by a missing Topsham player who failed to turn up for the game, sincere thanks to Dawlish for providing us with a player. Thanks to John Brand who was captain of the day.

The next game is Madeira  5/2/19 Captain of the day John Thompso


Topsham lost 36 - 78 to Madeira. Congratulations to Jeff Ramsden 18-24 and Alan Woodley 13-17 who both skippered two very good rinks. Despite my meticulous planning one Topsham player failed to turn up and another had to be reminded that he was playing today.

Captain of the day was Jose Northey - sorry Jose that you have to put up with the pain of changing to a Triples game.

The next game is 20/1/19 at Dawlish - John Brand will be Captain of the day.

John Thompson


ISCA 94 Topsham 46

Best rinks were Les Baker (16-18) who lost by 2 shots and Vic Guest (15-16) who lost by 1 shot.  At 9 ends both teams were in a commanding lead only to be beaten in last couple of rounds. Well done!
