The sun shined on play all day today. 10 pairs enjoyed 11 rounds of 10/10 golf croquet.  We welcomed a number of quite new players of the game and it was good to see them taking part in competitive croquet.

Alternate Strokes Doubles Event 28th October: Results and Report - by Pat_and_Richard_Jackson 05/11/2012 @ 21:43

 

Sussex County Croquet Club.  Alternate Strokes Doubles Tournament 28th October 2012

We welcomed 24 players from London and SE region clubs on a grey morning.  It was nice to see some high handicap players at their first tournament, gaining valuable experience.  Play started at 9.30 am with four 14 pt rounds (of 1hr 25mins each) in a Swiss format.  The winning pair were Gabrielle Higgins and Brian Havill from Hampstead Heath who beat local pair David Cook and Luc Berthouze in a fourth round decider  -  Gabrielle taking on a very angled jump shot at hoop 5 with an opponents ball on the opposite side.  The expression on Gabrielle’s face said it all: if I miss this one, they win!  Luc and David were unable to regain the innings.  Paul Robinson and Margaret Cooper from Chichester took third place from Rita Shipp and John Munt from Preston because they had a peg out in one of their games.  We had four pairs tying for fifth place.  Overall a very happy day.
