Some of the players
The weather held off long enough for us to complete all of the matches in which 12 competitors from around the North West croquet clubs took part. The players were divided into 2 groups of 6: A & B Classes. In an all-play-all format, the A-Class competed their block play early on the second day and the top 4 played off in 2 semi-finals, followed by a final where David beat Liverpool's James Hawkins. In the B-Class, Jerry Guest of Chester won all of his matches.
