Camerton & Peasedown beat Croquet Durham 4-2
Given the distance between Bath and Durham, the two clubs agreed to play (sort-of)
mid way at Nottingham.
I what turned out to be a close match the Camerton & Peasedown team of Brian Wilson (3),
Ros Key-Pugh (3), Mo Boys (3) and Patrick Knight (4) prevailed over the Durham
foursome of Roger Carpenter (2), Nigel Martin(3), Tony McCann (6) and Susan Martin (7).
At lunch, Camerton & Peasedown led 2-1 including a lengthy struggle in the doubles
where the first game went to the 13th hoop and lasted an hour and 40 minutes.
The afternoon was similar with the victors gaining another 2 matches, and the final
singles being agreed a draw, one game each (under rainy skies). In all two-thirds
of the games went to 12 or 13 hoops.
Many thanks to Nottingham for their hospitality.
