GC Winter tournament 15th November 2015 - by Roger_Sutton 26/11/2015 @ 13:29

Wins by Neil Humphreys and Graham Tucker in the two classes

Our Winter GC tournament took place on Sunday, although there had been 28 entries
after late withdrawals 24 players took part. I was able to divide the players into two
Blocks of 12, under 5 handicaps and 6 – 12 handicaps.

There were 17 SCCC members, several were playing their first tournament, and 7 from other clubs a particular note should be made of Charles and Ellie Martin had made the trek from Ramsgate.
The tournament took place in dull weather with drizzle at times we were thankful however that it was fairly mild.
The Blue block 6 – 12 handicap was won by Neil Humphreys who had 5 wins out of 6 he pipped Bob Clark on a who beat who basis, Bob also had 5 wins. Third place went to Deborah Marcus with 4 wins.
The red block under 5 handicaps had been joined by Graham Tucker the highest ranked 6 handicap to even the numbers. It was won by Luc Berthouze who had 5 out of 6 wins. The runner up on a rather complicated formula (see below) was Roger Sutton with Richard Brooks in third place and Chrissie Merrington in 4th place, all had 4 wins.
We thank Deborah Marcus for lunch of soup and rolls, Robin and his team for preparing the lawns.
Last but not least I thank my wife Jenny for helping me record the scores.

These are Luc’s calculations of how the Red group placings were achieved.

There were 4 people tied on 4 wins (Sutton, Brooks, Wootton, Merrington)
First criterion is who beats whom.

Sutton beats Brooks
Sutton beats Wootton
Sutton did not play Merrington

Merrington played Brooks and Wootton and lost to both. Therefore on who beat whom we have: Sutton > Brooks / Wootton > Merrington

Then, we only need to resolve tie between Brooks and Wootton.
Brooks and Wootton did not play each other.
Brooks has higher hoop number (16 against 12).
Thanks Luc

Alternate Stroke Doubles Competiton 7th November 2015 - by Luc_Berthouze 08/11/2015 @ 16:15

Twelve teams participated in the Alternate Stroke Doubles Winter Tournament on 7 November. Roughly 2/3 of the players were from SCCC, but we also welcomed teams made up of players from Preston, Crawley, Purley Bury, Caterham, Parsons Green, and Lodsworth. The tournament was run as a swiss with 4 rounds of 14-point games (75 minutes). Team handicaps were calculated as per the L4 AC Handicap Doubles Variation. Full bisques were used (team handicap / 3). Wins were worth 1 point. Draws 0.4. Peg-outs and peels received bonuses of 0.25 respectively. Given the weather conditions in previous days, the lawns were in very good condition. Many thanks go to the grounds team and Robin in particular who marked the lawns in the morning of the tournament. Deborah Marcus prepared a welcome hot soup as well as cakes. The weather was Novembr’ish although the final round saw some blue sky and sunshine coming through (see picture!).
 
1st place: Robin Wootton and Janet Hoptroff with 4/4 wins and 1 peg out.
2nd place: Luc Berthouze and Deborah Marcus with 3/4 wins and a peel. 
3rd place: John Taylor and Fred Bell with 3/4 wins.

Peeling prize: Hugh Brown and Richard Carline with 2 peels.

Website changes - by John_Low 06/11/2015 @ 10:52

As you will see there have been a number of changes to the website design.

This is being undertaken in stages as it was necessary to upgrade the underlying system to address the latest security issues and at the same time to improve the experience provided for users of smartphones and tablets.

There are still some tweaks to be done.  If you have any (hopefully helpful!) comments please address them to the webmaster.

Do you view this website on a mobile device? - by John_Low 18/10/2015 @ 20:07

I am in the process of upgrading the site so that it becomes mobile compliant.  This is a significant amount of work and may take some time.

In the meantime the experience on a mobile device will not be as good as it should be.  If you find it difficult there is a simpler layout available using the address: www.sussexcountycroquetclub.org.uk/mobile
