Bowled over in Europe
Congratulations Lisa John from Spofforths chartered accountants in Worthing, West Sussex, who was a member of the triumphant team crowned champions at this year’s European Women’s Bowling Championships. Bennett Griffin have been sponsoring Lisa for the last few years and are delighted that she has now reached such a high point in her sporting career.
Lisa was representing England at the Championships in Tilburg, Holland from the 7th – 16th June. After the event, she said: “We fought off tough competition from the favourites Sweden, beating them in the semi-finals in a very close match – 1146 v 1114. We then faced opponents Germany in the final. The match was very exciting with a huge crowd coming to support us. We had our noses out in front all the way and managed to win in convincing style 1049 v 919. Thankfully I left some of my best bowling until the last 2 games of the team event, scoring 256 in the semi finals and 254 in the finals. It is safe to say that this is the most amazing achievement of my bowling career. Winning the team event is the one thing that all countries want to win – it is the “blue ribbon” event of the Championships.”
Describing the win as ‘undoubtedly the best bowling experience of my life’, Lisa also competed in the singles, doubles and trios competitions. Well done on your win Lisa from all your supporters here at Bennett Griffin.
