It was a lovely sunny day and good company but the croquet was mixed!
The format involved a doubles match and two singles matches in round one followed by 4 singles matches in round two. Each match comprised the best of three games.
Julie and Andrea played in the doubles and started with an impressive win, 7-1. Then it all went wrong! The next two games were close with our opponents placing their balls with increasing accuracy and forcing long clearances and closely fought hoops. The two games were lost 6-7, 6-7.
The two singles were also closely fought Peter Adams won his singles but Hilary narrowly lost 6-7,6-7.
The Surbiton team provide us with a great lunch between rounds. A much appreciated sociable break.
Round two: Julie won her match, winning game 3 with an impressive 7-0! Andre’a match proved less of a struggle, winning 7-2, 7-1. But, unfortunately, after some long fought struggles, Peter and Hilary were beaten by their opponents.
So the end result was 4-3 to Surbiton. Well done and thank you to all the players.
