Around The Tournaments

Men’s & Women’s Championships (Cheltenham Croquet Club 14-18 June 2017)

Gabrielle acquitted herself well at the Men’s & Women’s Championships. In the Women’s she won her block to qualify for the KO stage, where she lost in a deciding game at the semi final stage having been 1-0 up.

In the Mixed Doubles she and partner Keith Aiton finished equal top of their block but lost a play off so failed to progress to the KO stage. Gabs won the 2016 edition of this event partnering David “The Beast” Maugham.

British Open Championships (The Hurlingham Club 1-9 July 2017)

Club members Gabs & Phil Cordingley will be playing in these. The Singles Championship draw has been made. Too complicated to explain in detail how the format works, but roughly you need to win six out of your first eleven singles games to qualify for a Bo3/5 KO stage. More as the tournament progresses.

Gabs and Phil will be partnering each other in the Doubles Championship, hoping to emulate some of their recent success for Middlesex at the Inter County Championship.

We can take up to four guests per day, so if club members would like to do some spectating let me know on what day and I’ll see what can be done.
