Deja vu against Bristol

I spoke too soon in the last news item. Another close defeat 9-11 against Bristol. Hoop count was in our favour as well on croquetscores.com, but alas, only match scores count. Plus, unusually for us, we had a team of 5!

The Federation team played at Swindon's really nice lawns on Saturday and came away with a 5-0 win. Robert, Paul and Adrian had a successful day's croquet. That's 2 wins from 2 so far this year....

Peter B - the fastest croquet player in the west?

Well, Peter Balchin has reached the FINAL of the GC Level play competition by playing - and winning - all four block games between the 18th and 26th of May. I believe this is a record, unless you know better... Bring on the opposition! Well done for winning and being organised, Peter.

Chairman’s bowl

This was won by Adrian Trickey. The weather was too good for Croquet. There were Six contestants, avoiding the royal wddding but in time to watch the FA Cup final.<p> Scored as a Hands ladder. It was won because Adrian had four wins Robin and John Cording had Three wins. Everyone had five games.

Recent League results

The Parkestone trophy game at Cheltenham ended in a 6-1 defeat. The opposition can always be relied on to put out a strong team and so it was. The first GC Level game was a closer affair away at Bath. It was level at 8 all going into the last round and the home team snook in 11-9. I'm told that the GC handicap game at Broadwas was a torrid affair. The home teams rather unique lawns tends to give the players an advantage.

Intermediate League

The club has withdrawn from the SW Fed Intermediate League for this season. We were unable to get members to man the teams. The club will not be allowed into the league next season due to League rules over withdrawing.
