Surbiton wins Federation GC Ladies Day at Southwick

The GC Ladies Day is an annual event run by the Southeast Croquet federation and hosted by Sussex County.

Frances Low, Sussex member and event Joint-Manager with Linda Gavigan , reported on the day to the assembled players afterwards on behalf of herself and Linda:

Many thanks for coming to Southwick yesterday. It was lovely to see so many of you - familiar faces and new ones!

I hope you enjoyed the day. The weather was kind to us.

Many thanks to Linda for her help and encouragement, to Mike Oulton and Jackie for refereeing and to Jonathan and Chrissy for the catering.

The winners as you know were Surbiton with 5 match wins and 13 games won. 2nd place were Guildford with 5 match wins but 11 game wins. So close! Congratulations to Surbiton.

The other places:

3rd Reigate P , 4th Chichester, 5th Rottingdean, 6th Sussex 1, 7th Littlehampton, 8th Cheam, 9th Ealing, 10th Sussex 2, 11th Rother Valley and 12th Tunbridge Wells. All were very close so it went down to games won or hoop difference!

Well done everyone. An enjoyable and friendly day.

Many thanks to Bill Arliss for allowing us to use his spreadsheet and for all his expert help. Good to see him and Pam during their visit today.

Best wishes to you all from Linda and myself. We will have a 'klaxon' next year!
