A brilliant day had yesterday by a lot of people from tennis, squash & cricket
Intersection Croquet Tournament
I think we had about 35/40 players in the end; from young - to a little order, and even a dog in there somewhere! There became a variety of seemingly ever changing teams. Everyone played a lot of games and enjoyed the usual splendid croquet BBQ â€“ (thanks Andrew)
Somehow we orchestrated semi finals (following some complex mathematics) with teams from cricket taking on tennis in both.
With some deft long play and accurate hoop running the first semi was a tennis victory 3-0, the other a little close with cricket winning 3-1
The final was made best of 7, watched by an increasingly knowledgeable crowd and it didnâ€™t disappoint, with the added spice of some cricket sledging rolled in.
Cricket came through to win 4-2, and were awarded the Dulwich Gnome as the trophy â€“ we look forward to seeing it in the club trophy locker...
Thanks to all those who took part â€“ hope we see you back again, do come and talk to us about joint section membership - Â£100 this year for croquet
Thanks to tennis for the amazing selection of cakes supplied.
A huge thanks to all the croquet members for their help on the day
