Ready for to take on South East

Sidmouth’s Golf Croquet team of eight players travelled to Budleigh Salterton for their penultimate match in the South West Federation Golf Croquet League South West Section, writes Helen Pryor.

After the dreadful rainy conditions experienced so far this season, it was a pleasure to play on a beautiful sunny day on four excellent lawns.

The match comprised four doubles and 16 singles. By lunchtime, when two doubles and 12 singles had been played, Sidmouth had established a good lead of 9-5. The lead was maintained in the afternoon session when two doubles and four singles were played, despite Budleigh Salterton winning three of the six games, with one draw.

Overall, against a strong Budleigh team, Sidmouth put up a creditable performance with John Coombes gaining the most points for the team with two wins and one draw.

The final score was Budleigh Salterton 8�, Sidmouth 11�.
