For Linda, Hazel and Rita it was a Test Match to remember as they won all their three triples and rinks matches to clock up a perfect six out of six victories.

 The start of the third and last day saw a close finish.  The ladies, with their cluster of wins put them in an unassailable position but the Men had to fight to the end.  In their last game they had to beat Spain which they managed on the last end of the match.

This was the sixth Test Match Cyprus has held and International Executive Officer, Fran Davis was naturally delighted with the outcome.

“We set ourselves a target to finish either first or second and we are very pleased to achieve what we did. Overall it was a very successful Test Match, well supported by members from all four clubs,” she said.

“Beside the players who took part I also received excellent support from other members, particularly the umpires and markers who did a sterling job”, she added.
