The finals of the Milverton Croquet Competition took place on Saturday 3 September at The Lodge and were kindly hosted by Andrew and Georgina Banton.
Andrew and Max Banton beat Sharon Hendy and Katharine Botes in the main competition whilst Ann Le Clere and Diana Patterson beat Lyndys Geen and Jayne Greer in the plate competition.
All those who had taken part in the preliminary rounds cheered on the competitors with a glass of wine or Pims in hand during a very pleasant afternoon in the sunshine!
Judging by the enthusiasm this year, there appears to be a real appetite for Croquet in Milverton and we intend to run another competition next year together with some informal “roll ups” when individuals can just turn up if they fancy a game and there may even be an opportunity for some coaching.
Many thanks to the recreation ground too, for gamely hosting the preliminary rounds this year.
Torquil and Chris
