Crediton Take on the Ex-Pats in Portugal

We set off on our Winter Tour in the middle of March and spent an amazingly hot week in Altura, on the coast of Portugal, near the Spanish border. We were there to play lawn green bowls on grass in March! During the holiday week, we played 4 games of bowls against local clubs, some of whom we had been to before in previous visits (renewing friendships and enjoying the camaraderie). Althought there were no trophies to be had, we did win every match and brought home good memories of some great games and times we had spent with fellow bowlers in the lovely hot weather that is the Algarve at this time of year. Our band of bowlers were drawn from Crediton, Morchard Bishop and Torquay Belgrave and we jelled well as teams during playing our matches. Roll on the English bowling season - we can't wait!
