Bowdon July Midweek Short Croquet (AC) Tournament, 16th – 17th July
20 competitors played in an Egyptian competition over a day and a half to find 4 semi-finalists to play in the main knockout event. The lawns were quite fast thanks to the work put in by Ground Manager Alan Mayne and his staff. Thanks also go to Alan Mayne & Lorna Frost for efficiently managing the event between them.
The semi-finals were contested by:
Cas Sinclair (h’cap 6, 1st qualifier) v. Carol Steinberg (5, 4th qualifier)
Alan Mayne (2 peels, 2nd qualifier) v. Steve Reynolds (3½, 3rd qualifier)
In the final, Cas Sinclair beat Steve Reynolds +6
The Egyptian winner was Alan Mayne.
The trophies were presented by Bowdon Club President Brian Storey. A selection of the presentation pictures can be found at https://bowdoncroquet.co.uk/blog/category/news/
