Thanks to Patricia Duke-Cox for the following report:
Ten players entered the July C-class event at Nottingham in July, including a visitor from each of the Blewbury and Hamptworth croquet clubs. The event was well managed and catered for by Bob Thompson players enjoyed the luxury of playing on a court without double banking most of the time. Unfortunately the heavens opened with thunder and lightning on the Sunday afternoon and the courts became waterlogged. Two games were abandoned but the result was never in doubt by that time. The runaway winner of the event with 6 wins was club chairman Omied Hallam.
The results are Omied Hallam 6/6: Lawrence Whittaker, Derek Buxton and David Gunn 3/4; David Brydon 3/5; Roger Berkeley and Paul Wolff 2/5; Richard Stevens 1/4 ; David Woodhouse 0/4 and Patricia Duke-Cox 0/5.
