Earlier in the month Head Office Administrator Sophie along with her team mates Ruth Rogers and Natalie Melmore from Kings BC, Devon, won the Bowls England Women's National Triples Championship, sponsored by Waterside Lodge Sales, at Royal Leamington Spa!

The final against Jean Barwise, Sheila Dixon and Liz Garrity from Croft BC in Cumbria was in the balance right up until the last two ends, when with just a one shot lead at 15-14 the Devon trio collected a seven.

The win represented a first senior women's outdoor title for both Sophie and Ruth Rogers and next year the triple will represent England in Ireland to compete in the British Isles.

It was a really successful week as Devon also won the Amy Rose Bowl, the women's 31 and under inter-county team championship, for the third time in the last five years.

Sophie commented, "I had a great week winning two national titles, I couldn't have asked for much more"
