Potters Bar members played their annual Ladies v Gents match for the George Edward Trophy at the weekend.
Club captain in 1983-84 and president in 1989 and 2002 before passing away last year, his daughters donated a trophy in his memory.
Captain Steve Hipperson reminded members of Edward's close association with the club before Jackie and Gillian presented the silverware to the winning team.
After losing last year, the ladies were keen for revenge but the men won 83-57 after both teams won on three rinks.

However, the ladies did win on both rinks at Hatfield in the District Rinks League.
Steve Jewell's team lost to Townsend in the Stockman Winser Trophy, but the Prentice Cup match against East Barnet Valley and District Triples clash with Batchwood Hall resulted in comfortable wins.
