2021 League season opens with a win

We started the revamped Croquet North GC League on Saturday 3 July with a steady victory over Auckland by 13 matches to 5.

Our team of Andrew Carpenter, Nigel Martin, Dave Parsons, and Peter Tymms, had a very good first half against Auckland’s Carol and Eugene Brady, Marcia Henderson, and Jane Pringle, and were leading 8-1 at lunch. The afternoon session was more closely contested with Durham prevailing 5-4.

Durham together with Auckland, Ripon and Tyneside make up Group 2 of the League and will play each other home and away. The winners of Groups 1 and 2 will then play off for the overall title.

Progress in the leagues may be seen on the Croquet North web site.
