Description: In the world of spectator sports, there are the all time greats: football, rugby, tennis, golf andÂ… lawn bowls...? In the sleepy seaside town of Torquay, on "The English Riviera," the game reserved for geriatrics and pensioners is taken very seriously -- none more so than by the reigning champion Ray Speight. Conservative and stuffy he has been Torquay's homegrown hero for more 20 years, but now his title is threatened. Cliff Starkey, a young pretender from the wrong side of town, is daring to go up against him. Armed with his sexy bad-boy persona, a flashy American agent Rick and an army of screaming female fans, Cliff is a fresh and exciting new sex symbol in the game. In fact, he is fast turning Lawn Bowls into the biggest spectator sport in England -- possibly the world! To add insult to injury, Cliff's biggest fan is his new girlfriend Kerry -- Ray's daughter!
