Dulwich beat Camerton & Peasedown 6-1
Camerton and Peasedown elected to travel up to us at Dulwich, enjoying some local hospitality the night before. We were blessed with good weather and our two newly treated lawns provided medium pace and accurate lines. The morning saw an upse tin the doubles with the 'croquet power couple' of Pierre Beaudry and Mark Daley (minus 4 and minus 2 respecitively) losing in straight games to Colin Britt (minus 2) and Mo Boys (2). In the singles Simon Carter (minus 3) had a 2-0 win against Patrick Knight (6), and Guy Scurfield (minus 3) beating Brian Wilson (3) also in straight games.
We gave our guests our legendary hearty Dulwich lunch and then rattled off the singles. These went to form with Dulwich claiming four out of four, all in straight games. It has to be said that Colin gave Pierre a scare on the 13th in their second, and only some very crafty split cannon clearing from Pierre saved that game.
Final result Dulwich 6 Peasedown 1.
