Bowdon May Handicap 5-7 May 2018
The early May Bank Holiday saw the first of the Bowdon six Croquet Association tournaments to be held at the club this year. Fourteen competitors entered the Bowdon May Handicap tournament (including 10 Bowdon club members).
Croquet play started promptly at 9.30am each day and 5 minutes of practice time was allowed beforehand on the lawn allocated for a player’s match. The event was managed by Lorna Frost.
The semi finals were contested by the top 4 players, provided that they had played at least 5 Egyptian matches.
In the Semi Finals, Jerry Guest beat Barry McKenzie +12 and Cas Sinclair beat Carol Steinberg. In the Final, Cas Sinclair beat Jerry Guest +26 to win the Reed Cup. Cas also obtained her CA Bronze Award.
Club President Colin Irwin presented trophies to Cas Sinclair (Reed Cup), Jerry Guest (Runner Up) and Carol Steinberg (Egyptian).
