INTER-CLUB SHORT CROQUET COMPETITION
SEMI-FINAL: PENRITH & N. LAKES 4-7 BOWDON
Bowdon played Penrith at Penrith & N Lakes Croquet Club in the CA Short Inter-club semi-final competition today, 1st August. In spite of the heavy rain the day before, the lawns were in good shape and the weather was perfect croquet weather - warm but not boiling, sunny spells and a very brief spit of rain!
Bowdon lost the doubles before lunch but won the 2 singles games. Lunch was a veritable feast provided by Penrith (for which, many thanks) and the afternoon ended up with Bowdon winning 5 of the 8 singles, ending up with an overall win for Bowdon 7-4. Well done to Jack Good, aged 13, for winning all his matches.
