Despite mainly wet weather, The Carol Lewis Memorial Trophy was a resounding success  It’s a handicap event and the eventual winner was 14 year old Jack Good from Bury Croquet Club – he is clearly a croquet star of the future and defeated the slightly (!) older Alan Pidcock in the final. We had two late entrants – a very new player who had only played a match once before, and his brother, who hadn’t played for 30 years after being extremely successful in his younger days. It was a pleasure to see croquet again being played after the covid restrictions. It was a damp day enjoyed by all – we now look forward to our league fixtures throughout the summer.
