Dave Kibble won the Edgbaston open weekend winning 5/5 games. The lovely flat lawns at Edgbaston are slightly let down by their varied pace surface. Chris Bennett reports that, armed with bringing part of next year's World Championship to the city, he has persuaded the City Council to pay for the lawns to be resurfaced. He hopes to avoid the problems many clubs have had from re-laying lawns by just resurfacing, which is very likely to be successful since their lawns are already flat and level. The lawns are surrounded by trees, making them well-protected from crosswinds.

The work should make the club the ideal spot - a friendly welcome, excellent food, flat courts with a consistent surface - a croquet players' paradise!
