10 May - Haydon and Coates win Spring AC Singles Tournament

There will be two new names on the Barnses Cup as Peter Haydon and Robin Coates won their respective Senior and Junior AC Handicap events in toady's Tournament.
The courts were in great shape and the best they have been for at least 10 years with the 'shorter grass and reduced  watering' regime that is now being employed, really bearing fruit for croquet players - At last we now have courts on which A can be played properly, so it's ''hats-off and thank you' to Head Gardener Paul and his staff Henry and Emily.
In a change from recent seasons, singles was preferred to doubles at this spring  tournament, and a two division split allow participants to play against their peers.
The Junior event was played on the smaller court 3, with 14 point game played to a base which gave both sides a number of bisques.
Robin Coates beat both Joanna Iyer and Edmund Shirley, impressively finishing the later game within 'time'.
In the Senior event, all four players were tied o one win a piece going into the third an final round, where a lose win for Peter Haydon was enough to give him the nod over fellow twice winner Frances Colman on the 'who beat whom' rule.
