Tyneside made a determined effort to regain the Golf Croquet Inter-Club title, which they won in its first year, by fielding two regular international players, John Moore and Derek Old. Their opponents, Hurlingham, put up a very spirited defence but in the end went down 4.5 to 2.5, the doubles not being completed.

This competition is still only in its third year but it is pleasing to see how the teams in this event are getting stronger each year. The full results were:

Nelson Morrow and Toby Jessel v Colin McDonald and Bruce Rannie 3-7, 7-4
Tom Coles lost to Derek Old 3-7, 4-7
Peter Quinn lost to John Moore 3-7, 3-7
Nelson Morrow lost to Bruce Rannie 6-7, 6-7
Toby Jessel beat Colin McDonald 7-6, 4-7, 7-6
Tom Coles beat John Moore 7-5, 7-6
Peter Quinn lost to Derek Old 2-7, 3-7
