Congratulations to our Serious About Events British Skittle Champions 2018

Worcestershire, Somerset, Devon & Dorset are the counties with the titles for 2018, will your county take the title in 2019!”

The men’s final was a local derby with the Numpty Dumptys from Worcester and Renegades from Redditch. A fantastic battle was fought with the Dumptys chasing the Renegades for the first 2 legs but the Dumpties stepped up their game and won by a mere 18 pins.

The ladies battle was even closer between Taunton’s Royal Tots & Lots and the Motley Crew from Weymouth. Motley Crew were just 4 pins ahead as they went into the final leg and the pressure was on. The Royal Tots stepped up their game to win by just 8 pins.

Two Devon mixed teams gave their all in the mixed final with previous champions Two Tribes from Exeter keen to take the title for a second time. Lucky Devils from Totnes showed their skittling prowess by fighting back against a great start by Two Tribes and winning by only 3 pins! It was literally any teams game right until the last ball was thrown.
