The green at Alvor was playing very well and thanks must go to them for the preparation and a well organised two days.

On a cloudy, humid Saturday, February 25 Balaia Bowls Club played their Bowls Algarve League Week 22 matches. The PODS Team lost three rinks away to Tavira Titans, whilst the Whalers played at home to Alvor Amigos winning two rinks. This maintains the PODS in their foundation position in the league whilst the Whalers move up into sixth place.
