Day 1 - Saturday 26 May 2018

The 16 players were welcomed to this inaugural 2 day event by David Thirtle-Watts, Chairman of Hunstanton CC. Day 1 was run in 2 blocks of 8 All-Play-All, with the top four in each block qualifying for the Main event; the rest to play each other in a round-robin for the Plate. All games were played without time limits. Martin French acted as Tournament Referee and Richard Bilton volunteered to run Croquet Scores. We are indebted to both of them and also to all the Club Members who supported the event.
