Having been postponed because of covid, the 10:10 Competition was finally held on Friday 11 March. For those who have never played one, golf croquet is played at speed. The game is timed with a chess clock and each pair has only 10 minutes of play. If one side runs out of time they can only defend and try to stop the other side from scoring any further hoops. The record today for completing a 13 point game was around eight minutes play! Clearance shots certainly get people running if they are the next ball.
Each pair played seven games and took turns manning clocks.
Robyn & Bob Clark, Fiona Phillips &Tony Jolly and Clive Hayton & Ben Harwood all won four games but the clear winners were Liz Farrow and Morgan Case with 5 wins and 2 draws.
Thanks to Fiona for organising and managing the day.
