A blustery weekend at Southwick saw some high quality croquet with the trophy ultimately going with home advantage to Dominic Nunns.

Dominic and Robin Brown fought a best of three super advanced final with the second and decisive game seeing Dominic pegging out Robin with Robin's backward ball on four back and Dominic on 1. Before Dominic had settled to run hoop 1 Robin ran four back and it looked quite possible that we might be heading into a 3rd game. However, a few turns later, one miss from Robin and it was all over.

In the plate Chris Coull managed to win all of his games to be the clear winner. We also had a sextuple from Chris o'Byrne though I'm not too sure whether it was a winning tactic over the whole weekend ;) .

The tournament was excellently managed and Sussex County Croquet Club provided a great, safe venue where Covid precautions were strictly adhered to.
