    Thailand defeats Commonwealth in lawn bowls match-up

    Thailand defeats Commonwealth in lawn bowls match-up
    Friday, 05 July 2013

    The Coco Club at Ban Amphur celebrated the opening of their newly roofed all-weather indoor lawn bowls centre with a match between Thailand and the Commonwealth based on a Ryder Cup style points and individual results system, starting at 9 a.m. and concluding at 6 p.m.

    Teams from Bangkok and Pattaya were joined by the Thai “Para” team, who have been under instruction at Coco Club for the last 2 months in preparation for their trip to South Africa to represent Thailand in the World Transplant Games in July and August. All 16 teams played 4 matches each.


    The players celebrate with their bottles of sparkling wine courtesy of Mont Clair.

    The event also had a good downpour or two which tested the roof and an electrical stoppage, but neither interfered with the play.

    The Thai team raced into a 8-0 lead and from then on it was tough going for the Commonwealth side. However, with 3 tied games and 4 games with just a one shot difference it gave hope for the rematch next year. The Thai side eventually won this one 43-21.


    Bank, Pukky and Yupa show off their medals.

    Coco’s local team of Bank, Pukky and Yupa did pick up the major team honours with a resounding win of 12 points over the nearest Bangkok sidein the four matches to take the gold medals and 10,000 baht first prize, donated by Kenya Airways, Maple-Abacus Consulting Services and Siam Winery.

    This article was published in the Pattaya Mail newspaper on Friday July 5, 2013 (Vol. XXI No. 27).

    Bunch of duffers from Pattaya?

    Edit: If the facility is any good they might attract some bowls teams for a holiday? My wrinklies go on bridge holidays and one of them plays bowls, so...
