Welcome to Torquay Bowling Club



Both Torquay teams entered in the MDL Cup are through to the semi-finals. On Saturday 14th July, Ray Blair, Harry Aspinall, Jerry Coffield and Ray Scott beat TCBC B who conceded after 18 ends with the score at 28 – 6. In the second round they beat Starcross by a narrow 24 – 22. The team of Mike Gregory, Derek Murgatroyd, Alan Hewitt and Eric Leason overcame Marldon B by the narrowest of margins, 17 – 16 in the first round and Kingsbridge Park 19 -14 in the second round. Well done to all concerned. The semi-final and final will be played at Upton Park on Saturday 8th September.
