David Maugham won the Bowdon June Advanced Weekend

[<<] [>>] by Ian Lines at Bowdon Croquet Club
6 June 2010 (AC)

The 2010 Bowdon June Advanced Weekend was won by David Maugham who beat James Hopgood in the final (+26tp, +15tp, +26tp). James had played well to beat Ian Lines in the semi-final, and hence earn his CA Silver Medal for getting to his first final in a 16 player knockout in a first class level singles event. The consolation Egyptian Event was won for the second year in a row by David Walters, who beat David Mooney in a closely contested final game.

The Peterson Trophy was presented to David Maugham by John Saxby, and thanks were recorded to Alan Mayne for the excellent lawns, Barry Keen and Colin Irwin for setting the hoops, and to John Saxby and his team of helpers who provided the magnificent catering.

The Bowdon lawns on Saturday were just becoming interesting at about 11.5 Plummers in the sunshine, and with hoops firmly set at 1/50" there was a reasonable level of interactivity in most games, although breaks and tps were still relatively easy once established. Unfortunately, overnight rain made the lawns and hoops comparatively easy on Sunday.
