County Championships

HSMBA Mixed Fours Champions - Townsend Shield

2021-22 Competition

The 2019-20 competition was held on Sunday 26 January 2020 at Ross BC with 10 teams competing initially in 2 round robin groups of 5 teams before the group winners and runners-up progressed to the knockout stage. In the first semi-final Joe Loveys was seeking a clean sweep of county titles and his team-mates Shirley & Becci Cox from Woolhope and Merion Attwood of Lea had a narrow victory against the Weston team of David & Heather Foulkes and Betty & Harold Aubrey to keep that hope alive. The second semi-final was even tighter and the teams could only be separated after an extra deciding end which saw last year’s losing finalists from Ross (Elaine & Rob George, Pam & Ian Park) pipped to a place in the final by Claire Herbert (Ross), David Millington Jones & Peter Wright (Weston) and Jill Howells (Golden Valley). The final saw Joe Loveys claim an unprecedented fifth concurrent county title as his team ran out 12-7 winners.
