Aided by Berkhamsted helper/director Linda Ralphs, she went undefeated to lift the title.

She beat Australian, Scottish, South African and Irish players meaning victory in her last match against a talented Israeli would see her triumph. She came back from 14-4 down to win 19-16.

Sarah was able to take part after the bowling fraternity raised funds, led by Berkhamsted club captain Brian Ralphs.

Berkhamsted’s new season starts this Saturday.
