AC league match v Peterborough

We hosted a Peterborough team which included Debbie Cornelius, the current Women’s World Champion and had a good match. Level at lunchtime, the eventual outcome of 1-3 was no disgrace considering the high quality of the opposition.

Sat 25 – Tues 28 May

Counties

We had a lot of fun as usual at this great gathering of players in Brighton and Eastbourne and showed an improvement on the previous year, winning two matches and avoiding the wooden spoon.

Tuesday 7 May

Social Day

Following a game or two in the morning, the first of the splendid shared lunches in the sunshine. Lots of smiles and very tasty home made food.

Sunday 21 April

Butters Trophy

Eleven entrants in the opening tournament of the season. A bracing day with the best of the sunshine later on. A brisk wind blowing from time to time. Nevertheless, enthusiastic play from all, including very recent arrivals Anthony and Catherine. In the end there were three players on four wins, seasoned competitors Colin and Lucy and George who joined last year. The Hemmings Shootout was watched in tense silence ( the croquet equivalent of the penalty decider after Cup games) and was won decisively by Colin Spencer.
