Sidmouth Croquet Club were hosts to a team from Exeter in the first SW Federation Golf Croquet Level Play League fixture of this season, writes Richard Thurlow.

The Sidmouth team got off to an encouraging start by winning three of the four doubles games.

With 16 singles games to play, however, events changed dramatically in favour of Exeter.

Despite a strong performance from Steve Pearson, who won all his three singles games, Sidmouth managed to win only four of the singles while Exeter won 12 and this all left the final score being 13-7 in favour of Exeter.
