Durham Cuthbert lose to Alnmouth Greens

The first league match of the 2022 season saw the Durham Cuthbert of George Cansino, Renee Copeland, Susan Martin, and Kathleen Penrose losing to Alnmouth Green 6-12 on Saturday 30 April.

Thus was the first match using the new Advantage handicap system, where instead of the higher handicap player having possible extra bisque shots, the two players have different targets for the number of hoops they have to make to win the game. Generally speaking the system seemed to work well, and there were only a couple of occasions where more complicated maths came into play when a game failed to complete within the time limit.

The weather kept fine for the day and the Alnmout players complimented s on the quality (and flatness) of our lawns.
