Lym Valley Croquet Club loses out to East Dorset

A TEAM of four from Lym Valley Croquet Club travelled to Poole for a SW Croquet Federation League match with East Dorset Croquet Club.

The weather was mixed but so was their croquet as they found it difficult to come to terms with the speed and size of the well manicured full size lawns.  The Uplyme lawn is three-quarters size.

Nevertheless, Richard Cousins and John McCallum won the doubles game in the morning, with John also winning his singles in the afternoon, and Stan Curran snatching a draw in his afternoon singles game.

Despite losing the match,  the Lyme Valley players had an enjoyable day out against higher ranked opponents.

They look forward to hosting East Dorset on Thursday (June 16) for the return match at King Georges Fields in Uplyme.
