We had 10 entries for this weekend of Golf Croquet. The format was a 'round robin' with 'all play all' 13-Point 1-Hour time limit games.
8 rounds on Saturday [finish 7.30pm].
One final round on Sunday + Best of 3 game Semi's, 3rd/4th Playoff & Final. [finish 5.30pm]
Also there was a 5 game 'plate' competition for the 6 remaining players. [finish 5.30pm]
All 5 lawns were hard,fast and challenging!
It has to be said the whole tournament was played in a good and very friendly atmosphere. Considering it was such an incredibly hot weekend [30C+], everyone kept their 'Cool', which was indeed very commendable. Also a special thank you to Frances Colman for being Referee on the Sunday. She was kept very busy.
