With players from as far afield as Sweden and Colchester, Wednesday saw the start of the tournament with the Handicap Singles.
Players were arranged in 4 American Blocks, at the end of the day, the block winners were:
Brian Shorney ( Eardisley/Budleigh Salterton) , Philip Harris ( Sidmouth), Georgeen Hemming (Colchester) and Mike Taylor ( Sidmouth).
The semi-finals saw Georgeen Hemming beat Brian Shorney +8 and Mike Taylor beat Philip Harris also +8.
In the Final Georgeen beat Mike +9.
Friday saw the start of the Class event, which was Advanced Play for all blocks.
Block A for the Challenge Cup saw a tie for first place with 3 players each with 4 wins out of 6-
Cliff Jones ( last year's winner ), Colin Hemming and Simon Carlsson ( Skellinge, Sweden).
Simon had played in the GC European Championships in Budleigh Salterton the previous week and is over in the UK for another few weeks combining sightseeing with a few other croquet tournaments.
Luckily for the Manager it was easy to determine the winner as Simon had beaten both Cliff and Colin. Cliff was runner-up having beaten Colin.
Block B for the David Rawkins Cup was won very convincingly by Richard Williamson ( Bristol) with 6 wins out of 6.
Block C for the Fortfield Cup was won by Philip Harris with 5 wins out of 6. The results for this block were very close with 3 other players having 4 wins out of 6 -Kathy Wallace ( Nailsea ) ,Brian Shorney, Brian Pollock ( Sidmouth).
