DAMHA resident George Alderson is bowled over with success after being part of a cup winning team.

George and three fellow members of Durham Indoor Bowls Club, emerged triumphant from the prestigious competition held recently at Potters Resort, Norfolk.

Following three days of league and then knockout rounds, the fantastic four fought off competition from 15 other teams from all over the UK to take first prize.

“This competition is well known in the bowling world and the standard was high so it was good to come out on top,” said George, who lives at DAMHA’s George Parkinson Court in Sherburn Village.

As part of the prize, the team get to return to compete in November 2024 with other monthly winners in the Champion of Champions Final. This is played on the same carpet as the Indoor Bowls World Championships which Potters Resort also hosts.

George, who is a DAMHA residents’ representative, was first introduced to the sport as a ten-year-old by his father.

“He used to drag me along and when they were short of a player I would be drafted in so they didn’t get docked points,” said George. “Then when I got to 18 I found other interests and didn’t really play bowls again until I was 45.”

Now 74, George plays indoor bowls five times a week and has represented Durham County.

“I really enjoy it,” said George. “It keeps you active, has a good social aspect of meeting up with friends and making new ones and there’s also that element of competitiveness
