Bury Croquet Club AC Handicap Tournament 3-4thAugust 2019
12 players entered this tournament both from home and also from far afield of Huddersfield, Worcester and Penmaenmawr! Handicaps ranged from -1 to 18.
We had a lovely weekend with only a few drops of the threatened wet stuff on Sunday!
On Saturday play was in 3 blocks all play all. This was followed on Sunday by playoffs between the top players in the blocks and the best of the second place players. The other players played in a Consolation event, playing 2 games against people they hadn’t played before.
James Thomas (Llanfairfechan), who only started playing croquet 12 months ago and that was Golf Croquet, was on top form. He won all his games +25, +24, +14, +18 and + 26 to win the tournament and also gained his Bronze and Silver merit awards in the process!
Everyone enjoyed the weekend whatever their own results.
Congratulations again James and best wishes for your future in croquet.
