This annual event was held again at Hurlingham on 25th August with the threat of heavy rain and storm force winds causing the late withdrawal of 2 of the entrants. So a big thank you to Clive Freedman for stepping up to the plate at very short notice and I am sorry that his first game was a bye!,We otherwise welcomed 15 players to the club for an excellent day of croquet played, surprisingly, in dry and, later in the day, very sunny conditions with some wind to blow the Covids away. ,After 5 rounds we had two undefeated players left standing for the Grand Final. This went to the Golden Hoop and our winner was Sudy Harrison of Hurlingham and the runner up was Rick Lilley of Phyllis Court. In third place was Elaine Wilson with 3 wins and a slightly higher net hoops score than four other players also on three wins.,Congratulations to all the winners and many thanks to all the competitors for contributing to such a good day.
