Mixed Fortunes for SA in Scotland

by | Jul 25, 2007

The South African women’s team playing in the Atlantic International Tournament at Ayr in

last week had mixed fortunes, and the word is that the women did slightly better than the men.  

Colleen Webb won Gold for
South Africa by comfortably beating
Scotland (21-16),
England (21-5) and

(21-15) in the final rounds.

South Africa’s Fours team, comprising of Lorna Trigwell, Cheryl Cox, Loraine Victor and Sylvia Burns, ended up in second place, narrowly losing 16-17 to

Cheryl Cox, Loraine Victor & Sylvia Burns shared third place with
Canada in the Triples, and the South African Pairs team ended up in fifth place, along with
Netherlands and
England, with

declared champions.

The teams expected to represent
South Africa at World Bowls in
New Zealand, early in 2008 will more than likely show little changes to the teams that saw action in


The Atlantic Tournament is regarded as being part of the South African team’s preparation for World Bowls, even though the greens in New Zealand are expected to be much faster that those in Scotland.

The South African teams are next in action in a test series away to

New Zealand
later this year, which should give them the ideal opportunity to come to grips with the conditions.

All the results are available on the Bowls South Africa website.
