S League Victory – SECF 2021


By - 08th June 2022

The ‘Small’ lawn ‘S’ league (Association Croquet) comprises 3 players involved in two doubles and two singles matches. With Martin P out of action, Philip D picked up the reins.

Having organised the dates for the matches early in the season (originally 4 teams, then Hampstead were added late in the day) it then left the player availability to sort out, so thanks go to Caroline, Doug, Frank, John B and Simon who all stepped up and played their part.

Our first game v Hampstead was disappointing for the team, as Hampstead withdrew the night before, but still a w/o victory; our game v Merton (away on a very hot day) went to the wire and we were unlucky not to win, the score 2-2; Cheam was always going to be a challenge and we lost 1-3, but the final game of the season we came up trumps winning 3-1 at Rottingdean.

Well done Team!
