Paul Salisbury won the Wrest Park Advanced Weekend

[<<] [>>] by Rod Ashwell at Wrest Park
8th August 2006 (AC)

Paul Salisbury won the Wrest Park Advanced Weekend for the first time with five straight wins, albeit with a slightly shaky start.

The lawns were dry and fast with tight firm hoops which may explain the lack of triple peels over the two days. Those who attempted were rewarded with their game not going to time. Aside from the Croquet a fine weekend was had by all, aided and abetted with superb dining provided by Wrest Parks finest Members and the free flowing red wine making the best of the scenery.

Entrants may have been slightly confused on arrival as there is now a new entrance route via Clock Tower yard - with an extra padlock but with the same code. Those visiting Wrest Park for events in the future should look out for instructions on the CA Website which will be following shortly or contact the Club Secretary John Bevington.
