From the Tunbridge Wells Croquet Club website:
The Montevideo Cup is the name of the trophy for our one day Golf Croquet tournament, genrously donated by the 2011 winner Jonathan Lamb, who happens to live there! Luckily the weather was also kind to us, with no showers after play started and the sun countering the blustery wind. In addition Jonathan had persuaded another Uruguayan resident to play in his first GC tournament, so making up a full complement of 12 players.
Richard returned after his second place in our earlier GC tournament and turned out the winner this time, beating Jonathan 7-5 in the final game, having lost to him in the 6-round Swiss qualifier. In fact Richard was the clear winner, since Jonathan has lost to Keith Webb earlier.
Full results are:
|Richard Brooks||1||Sussex County||6|
|Keith Webb||2||West Worthing||4|
|Maggie Webb||3||West Worthing||3|
The tournament was won by Robert Fulford who beat Stephen Mulliner in the final. Losing semi-finalists were Rutger Beijderwellen and Jamie Burch.
Richard Jackson beat Lionel Tibble in the plate. Well done, Richard!

Sorry, Liz, I messed up the photo!
It was a close competition and could have gone any way right up to the bell. Any of the top 4 could have won depending on the outcome of all the other matches.
In the end Gabrielle & Rick squeaked home 10-9 in a nailbiting battle against Alan Rew & Alan Theobald.
