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!"

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.
Sorry we have cancelled the AC Challenge on 8th June due to lack of interest.
