Bury Croquet Club's first two-day advanced tournament was run at Heaton Park on the 22-23 September 2007.
In very pleasant weather twelve contestants took part in a knockout with subsidiary weighted Egyptian. Time limits were imposed only on the latter.
The winner was Paul Rigge, of Bury, who beat Southport's Bob Burnett in a best-of-three final +3 +17. In the first game he went for a TP but was perhaps unlucky that the rover peel was only half successful, the striker's ball overrunning into the wire. Bob then went round and pegged out Y, with K for 1, and almost held out in the two-against-one. In the second game Paul eschewed peeling and got a steady win. He also secured a handicap reduction to scratch. The Egyptian was won by James Hopgood of Meadows.
