Richard Sanville won the National Forest AC Handicap Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Mick Haytack at Ashby Croquet Club
16 Jun 2013 (AC - Handicap)

Ten players with handicaps ranging from 3-11 played in mostly glorious weather with the odd shower on Saturday.. There were five Ashby players, one from each of Nottingham, Colchester and Hamptworth and two from Australia. The final set of matches paired Richard against Tim and Arthur against Bob with all four players having a chance of lifting the trophy. Richard used his bisques well to beat Tim in quick time, then had to watch anxiously as Arthur quickly went to peg with his first ball then broke down with his second. Bob slowly clawed thing back but Arthur eventually prevailed and Richard became the first Ashby player to win this event. Jenny Biggs once again provided first class catering and the handful of spectators managed to stay awake for most of the proceedings. Tim earned a handicap reduction to 3.5.
