Woking's annual two day golf croquet handicap tournament took place in mostly agreeable weather. As usual it comprised singles and doubles, each of the fourteen competitors playing six games of each. All the manager could guarantee was that nobody played the same person twice in the singles or with the same partner more than once in the doubles! Extra points were awarded for completing games on time. In the singles all but twelve of the 42 games were completed within fifty minutes while, perhaps surprisingly, in only one out of 21 doubles games did either side fail to score seven hoop points in 55 minutes.
The singles, tied on points between Gillian Noble-Jones, Peter Redshaw and Henry Safran (all of Woking), was won by Gillian on net hoop points scored, whereas Elaine Gubbins (also Woking) was a clear winner of the doubles followed by Chris Roberts and Frances Coleman of the Phyllis Court Club in second and third places respectively.
