The EACF GC Enfield Derby 

Monday, 9th May saw the first match of the season for Enfield West and Enfield East as battle commenced in the EACF GC League.    It was a glorious sunny start for Enfield East in terms of weather and the doubles games with wins in all four matches.   However, Enfield West came back with a vengeance in the singles matches and the final score was 13-4 to the West.  Unfortunately one match had to be abandoned due to injury (nothing serious we're pleased to report).   Pictures from the day can be found here.

AC 3-3 Draw Against Wrest Park

The first AC games in the Beds and Herts League proved a challenging one not helped by the wind which made it anexceptionally cold day, seemingly affecting everybody's accuracy.   A full report on the games and our team comprising Thomas Halliday, Michael Broadway, David Frost and John Street can be found here

National Finals Charity One Ball

The weekend of 7th and 8th May saw the Association Croquet Charity One Ball Final at Surbiton.   Members may recall that we held an internal competition in April to identify those who would be taking part.    Ultimately this was Michael and Frances Broadway along with David Frost – all of whom played valiantly with David beating three players with handicaps of -5!    The winner was Nailsea Club’s James Galpin and as importantly, around £8,000 was raised for MIND. 

Charity One Ball

Today - 28th April - was the Club competition to find who would be playing in the annual Croquet Association's Charity One-Ball Competition. In the 15 years that this national event has been running, it has raised over £50,000 for charity. This year, the competition is in aid of MIND, the mental health charity.

 

A good number of members entered the competition and a great day was had by all with £175 raised for MIND.   The two finalists who will be taking part at the national finals on Sunday, 8th May at Surbiton are Frances Broadway and Brian Dawes.

Cheers and Congrats to Kim Taylor

 

On Wednesday, 27th April club members Kim Taylor and Thomas Halliday travelled to the Roehampton Club for the first of the year's B-Level tournaments. 

 

It was a day of mixed results with and some tough competition. Thomas and Kim finishedin 8th and 9th place respectively however as Kim wom the Plate Competition which saw him being rewarded - no, not with a plate - but an engraved whisky tumbler.   Well done Kim.
