Ros Pimlott won the 2008 Golf Croquet Handicap Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Abdul Ahmad at Pendle
28th April 2008 (GC)

The East wind gave Pendle a distinctly wintry and cold feel this weekend. The players came attired in multi-layers of clothes to keep the chill out. They looked more like spacemen than croquet players in their bulging wind proofs. The conditions didn't deter them from finishing a heavy schedule. They all deserved a medal for braving the elements.

Ros Pimlott from Bowdon won the main event. She beat Pendle's flu ridden Barbara Dutton in the final. David Harkness (Ilkley/Pendle) and Mary Warren (Southport) walked away with the consolation doubles event.
