17 July - Christmas wins the AC One Ball Handicap Singles

Mike Christmas won all four of his games in this morning's AC One Ball Handicap tournament and in doing so he reached an unassailable position.
Instruction beforehand proved useful to the novices and beginners alike and it was good to see that all mastered the unfamiliar two-ball croquet stroke quickly.
Bill Pitkeathley and Tony Peperell (who both appear to have really got the croquet bug) showed well in the first couple of rounds, as did Edmund Shirley and Diane Browne who were on more familiar territory.
But it was Christmas who was the only player to win two out of two, and then he won twice more and could not be caught, even if there had been time for further games with AC old hands Frances Colman and Chris Roberts.
With time pressing and the and the arrival of the GC Mix-in players, there was time enough for the presentation of the lovely Wooden Ball trophy to worthy winner Mike.
