The CCA AC Grade Champs was played on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th January 2018. After the recent rain, Barrington Park Croquet Club was unplayable, so it was played at United Croquet Club.
The first day was damp with wet lawns, but Sunday was fine and hot with the lawns drying out and speeding up significantly.
There were 5 entries in the 0-4 grade that was played as a single round robin. John Yarrall, who won all his games won the grade. Leo van Oosten and Tony O’Donnell (who also managed the tournament) won two games, but Leo was runner-up on net points. Full results are on CroquetScores.
There were five entries in the 9-14 block but there was one withdrawal after the first day. Lyn Dawson was the winner with three wins and Neville Turner runner-up with two wins. Full results are on CroquetScores.
There were insufficient entries for the other grades to be run.
