EACH year the Iberian Open competition heralds the start of the winter bowling season.

112 competitors from Javea and surrounding clubs battled it out over 8 days for the chance to lift the prestigious trophies and pocket generous prize monies.

1,500 ´ends´ were played and in excess of 5,000 woods delivered. 1,260 bottles of water along with 400 litres of beer were consumed.

Monday was finals day and after several nail-biting matches the winners were announced.

The mens rinks was won by Paul Brown, Stewart Beattie, Brian Manser and Derek Eldon.

Ladies rinks winners were Wendy Symonds, Lynda Warnes, Yvonne Brown and Chris Evans.

Aussie Pairs champions were Chris Evans and Clive English.

The main event as always was saved till last and Yvonne Brown and Maggie Lawley had a nip and tuck game before Maggie emerged triumphant with a score of 21-18.

The mens final, also a close run affair, was won 21-18 by Paul Trunchion against last years winner Alan Phillips.  Paul was also declared Player of the Tournament.

The bowls club President Alan Travers expressed his greatest thanks to sponsors Avalon Europe, Telitec and Scottsdale overseas for their generous and continuous support before competitors enjoyed a meal and disco courtesy of Matt and Brian Taylor.
