Short Croquet Mini-competition 24th April 2023
The Short Croquet inaugural Alternate Stroke handicap doubles took place on 24th April. 16 players took part, 8 pairs so a good entry. There were 2 blocks and each block had 3 x 14 point games of 1 hour 20 mins. Block One was won by Bob and Robyn Clark with 3 wins, and Block Two was won by Frances Low and Martin Daniels with 3 wins. As time was short, we decided not to play a final so 2 block winners were declared!
Thanks to all the players, particularly those who have just started the game. I am of course grateful to the experienced players who helped and supported them. I hope we all learnt something!
Anyone interested in starting short croquet, please contact me. It is good fun, challenging and will give you access to many different shots which are useful in GC as well!
