Maccabi bowlers sparkle on latest Israel tour

Stuart Lustigman praised the spirit of his delegation following their return from the Maccabi Lawn Bowls Israel Tour 2018.

    The group of 57 participants have returned home following a schedule that saw them play at all five of Israel's clubs.

    This was the eighth consecutive year that the bowlers had toured Israel but for the first time the programme included a match playing alongside 22 blind or partially sighted bowlers.

    There were a number of first-placed winners, including Susan Raymond, Steve Levy and David Frost in Ra'anana and Stuart Lustigman and Philip Norman in Netanya.

    The 41 bowlers were assembled from 12 different clubs which brought the total number of tourists to have participated in the tours since 2011 to over 400.

    Tour leader Stuart Lustigman said: "I was delighted with the exceptional spirit within the group and once again lawn bowls proved an excellent vehicle to combine sport and Israel awareness in one tour."
