Club, Regional and National Tournaments since 1996:   Roll of Honour

Southern Croquet Federation Golf Croquet Handicap League (round 1)

High Wycombe vs Blewbury - Wednesday 27th April

This opening match of the season had been scheduled to be played at Blewbury, but as one of our courts had a re-seeded south boundary area that was not yet ready for play, it was switched to our opponents' lawns at Hazlemere. High Wycombe put out a very strong team and Blewbury never really got going, losing all the doubles games and only Dave Grinstead of Blewbury winning in the singles. The final result was a 2-8 defeat with the last two games remaining unplayed.

Association Croquet Spring Doubles

Manager Nick Butler - Played on Saturday, 22nd April

Cool late April relented enough to give us some sunshine, but still only four players entered, so short 14-point games and some partner-swapping were adopted. In game 1, Paul Wolff and David Seed beat Nick Butler and David Spear +13. Next, the two Davids exchanged places and a much closer and longer game ensued, which was won by Nick and David Seed +4. It being past lunchtime and the clouds looking threatening, Nick declared David Seed the winner, as the only undefeated player.

Charity One-Ball
Local heat of national charity tournament in support of Myeloma UK

Manager Nick Butler - Played on Saturday, 9th April

The first club event of the season, we played on the winter lawns, which were 6/7 of regulation size. They played remarkably well, and David Seed and helpers are to be congratulated on having given us a 12-month playing year. As far as this reporter knows, everyone enjoyed the day; and it is certain that everyone won at least one game and 40 was raised for this year's charity.
