Hunstanton Over 50's Handicap Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Terrey Sparks at Hunstanton
11th June 2017 (AC - Handicap)

Barry Pilgrim playing in his first listed C.A. tournament and winning seven of his eight games won the Hunstanton Over 50's Handicap Tournament played over the week-end of 9th - 11th June 2017. Playing steadily and with confidence and using his bisques wisely earned him a handicap reduction from 10 - 8. In second and third place respectively was Mike Bowser and Hugh Carlisle.

Apart from the croquet a highlight of the tournament was the appearance of a Red Kite over the lawns with an display of aerobatics until he was seen off by the local Oyster Catchers who mobbed him into retreating. However, 30 minutes later the Kite returned only to be met this time by the Rook Squadron who dished out similar treatment. Who says croquet is boring.
