7 September - Lilley wins the 3+ Singles 'Red Ball Trophy' Tournament

Rick Lilley secured the first tangible proof that he is the most improved Phyllis Court player this season when he lifted the 3+ Singles tournament's Red Ball Trophy today, rounding of the busiest seven days of the Club's competitive scene so far.
This is a tremendous achievement for a player who only picked up a mallet for the first-time last season, and a good croquet career on the national competition circuit beckons for the ambitious player from Frieth.
Lilley's winning margin over the experienced Raghu Iyer was the closest possible under the tournament regulations when the pair tied on six wins from their seven games, also tied with the same net hoops score and could only be separated at the end of the all-play-all eight-player block by their head to head game result.
Lilley had won that crucial match 7-4, but had then lost out to Bill Pitkeathley who announced his return to croquet with an impressive third place finish just one game win adrift.
Also meriting a mention in dispatches was Kevin Ward who came in as late replacement player on the morning of the event and picked up three wins despite being the outsider on handicap grade.
Lilley is one of a number of Phyllis Court players to have qualified for national finals this month.
