The Results: Tuesday 15 January
Three exciting Singles matches took place on Tuesday 15 January at the Just World Indoor Bowls Championships.
The first match of the day saw reigning Pairs and Mixed Pairs Champion Jamie Chestney up against the Wildcard choice, James Rippey. Despite a good start, Rippey couldn't keep up with Chestney, who won both sets 10,4.
Next up was five time Open Singles Champion, Scotland’s Paul Foster MBE, against the PBA Qualifier from Wales, Damian Doubler. The first set started well for Doubler, but following some closely matched playing it was Foster who won the first set. The second round was a win for Doubler, which led to a final tie break. The tie break resulted in a win for Foster, who beat Doubler by mere inches to take the game.
The final game of the day saw England’s Les ‘Razor’ Gillett take on PBA Qualifier Paul Coleman. Gillett was on top form throughout the match, despite Coleman's best efforts, and he took the first and second sets to win the game.
