Sussex GC Open won by Andrew Cowing - by John_Low 08/09/2014 @ 09:07

A lovely autumn weekend saw Andrew Cowing triumph in the GC Open Competition for the Hamilton Trophy, beating local player Janet Hoptroff in the final 7-4, 2-7, 7-5.

The field was reduced by four withdrawals through ilness, injury or no show and left the Manager wishing he had powers of foresight!

The consolation bottle was awarded to Jonathan Isaacs, as a shortened (so players could watch the final) Swiss competition did not produce a true outcome.

 

Full results to follow.

WCF World Teams AC Championship Tier 2.2/3 - by JohnLow 17/05/2014 @ 09:25

Anyone visiting the club this week can't fail to have seen this event taking place.  Seven teams from Austria, Canada,  Czech republic, Germany, Norway, Spain and Sweden competing in teams of four.

Three games a day for each player (1 doubles and 2 singles) was a lot of games and the top team scored well over 1200 hoops in the six days!

Ray Hall took a lot of photos and I will put a selection on the website in due course.

A summary of the results will follow here shortly, but you can find all the results on http://www.croquetscores.com - look for WTC Tier 2.2/3 in the list of competitions.
