16 people played at United Croquet Club on 4 lawns the morning of Saturday 6 April.
The top 2 teams from each block went to play for the various finals. Thus making 4 teams in the Atkins main event and 4 teams for the plate in a single round Robin . This was due to be played on 16 March but was postponed due to circumstances to Saturday 6 April.
Strong play was had for both finals. With the main event most of games going to time of 1 hour compared to the plate where the games were shorter.
Play was played on very slow damp lawns due to recent rain the days before.
The main event was not decided until the last round. With the Cashmere school boys of Josh Winter and Flynn Moses-Jones winning on net points from Fendalton Park’s Cheryl Morrall and Grace Leitch, both winning 2 games.
The plate was a lot more straight-forward with St James Park’s Jonathan Hart and Nicky Adams taking this out with 3 / 3 wins.
