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.

The South of England Week played at Compton Croguet Club, Eastbourne 22-27 September  is looking for more players, otherwise it may be cancelled.

Club Chairman Mike Cockburn writes:

"We are keen to encourage more players to enter this long-established tournament and would be grateful if you could bring this message to the attention of any of your members who might be interested. It takes place at the Compton Croquet Club in Eastbourne and features handicap singles, handicap doubles, class singles and a consolation singles. Entrants may choose one or more events and the programme is structured in such a way that players need only be present for part of the week if they wish - see below for a brief summary: full details in the CA's Fixtures' Calendar (pages 49/50) or on the CA website (click the “Tournaments” tab, “Fixtures Calendar” under “Individual Competitions”, scroll down to “22-27 Sep” and choose the “i” icon for information or the green and red icon to enter).

 

Entries may be made online via the CA website (preferred) or by post - but in the latter case an email to the manager Colin Hemming (Colin@ColinHemming.com) would be much appreciated.

 

Lunches and teas will be available and we hope to provide Eastbourne's famous sunshine!"
