Croquet Durham beat Nottingham 4-3

[<<] [>>] by Dr Ian Vincent at Durham
6 Aug 2014 (GC - Inter-Club Shield)

Croquet Durham took a 2-0 lead in the morning singles and had lost one of the afternoon ones before the doubles finally finshed (due to generous supplies of coffee and cake, heavy showers, lunch, a third game, and some deliberative play by the visitors). That left the match still live when the other singles started, but it was agreed that they would be truncated to a single game if the hosts took the winning point during it, which they duly did, to enable the visitors to get back in daylight.
