I think all members will agree, we have had a very busy, but successful year.
We have played in, and hosted, some wonderful competitions. It all started in June when we hosted the County Two Wood Competition. After some great feedback, a date has already been confirmed for us to host this competition again in 2020. The Essex VP's played against us at the end of June as part of their tour. This was a very busy day, but a great success. We then held our Annual Mixed Triples Tournament in August, hosting 24 teams from East Sussex. We were very lucky with the weather and after some extremely close matches, the final was won by Hailsham BC.
Towards the end of the season we hosted National competitions. Firstly, we had Eastbourne BC v Bearsted & Thurnham BC playing in the Tony Allcock Trophy. We then hosted the Men's Top Area Club Competition between Bromley BC and Hove & Kingsway BC and the Ladies Top Area Club Competition between Polegrove BC and Lenham BC. We saw some wonderful bowling. Congratulations to Eastbourne BC, Bromley BC and Polegrove BC who went onto the finals at Leamington Spa.Thank you to everyone for making this such a successful year on and off the green.

In a thrilling end to the season, Wadhurst clinched the Horam League title in the last game. After running neck and neck with Ringmer BC over the last few weeks an 8-0 win in our last game against Maresfield gave use the top spot by the smallest possible margin of half a point.
Of our 22 games we won 16, drew 1 and lost 5 and gained 120.5 points against Ringmer's 120 points. Hellingly were 3rd with 112.5 points.
This is the first time we have won the league during our 6 season membership. (Malcolm Dick)
