Victory for Lym Valley in short croquet match

croquetAN excellent performance by Lym Valley Croquet Club at the short croquet match against Camerton and Peasedown CC at their Uplyme ground.

The morning saw glorious sunshine and Lym Valley going into lunch 6-2 up. Rain in the afternoon did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the home team but Camerton and Peasedown fought back valiantly in the final matches to take three out of the four late games.

Lym Valley eventually came out 10-6 winners with Stan Curran back to his best winning all four of his games in fine style, pegging out in three of them. John Marjoribanks and John McCallum both recorded three wins out of four.

 Short croquet is a handicap game played on an approximately half size lawn with a shortened hoop run and a time limit of one hour 15 minutes. The handicap system and smaller lawns are such that newer players with high handicaps can more confidently take on the more established players and it really helps them make big strides in improving their game.
