THE Ladies of Loddon Vale enjoyed a winning double last weekend.

Two teams played the Mason Trophy first round against Dolphin B team.

It was a very closely fought game and Loddon won it 42-29 and next they meet Palmerston.

The Ladies then played in the Riversmeet league against Banister Park from Southampton.

Again it was a very good game with Loddon Vale winning on all three rinks by 68 shots to 47 thus gaining 10 points. The next round will be against Longmeadow who are based in Whitchurch.

The men’s team played in the Bramley League against Atherley and won on three of the four rinks as it finished 107-65.

It was a weekend of mixed fortunes for Loddon in friendly fixtures. They lost at home to London Welsh 107-102 and then hosted the Bucks Vice Presidents team, winning on three rinks in a 152-102 victory.
