Entries this year travelled from Surrey, Dorset, Monmouthshire, Somerset and Gloucestershire, and after 48 games it was The Park (Willmott Park, Bristol) that were victorious. Second place went to Team McFuidge (Clevedon Prom) and third place went to Gauld Blend - four brothers, led by Ian Gauld (Olveston BC).

Glenhawkes (Bishop Cleve BC) led the table for most of the day but finished fourth, and last year’s winners Keeping it in the Family found the going a lot tougher this year, finishing 20th.

A Charity Bowls Spider during the lunch interval raised £150. The money will be shared between Prostate and Bowel Cancer charities.

Next years Tournament is planned for Sunday September 30 and is already looking like being another sell out with 14 rinks registering interest in returning in 2018.
