Match Report

Sat & Sun Jun 29-30, 2006


Despite the rain on Saturday, twelve players entered the Read Trophy Tournament, with play continuing on a sunny Sunday 30th.

This Association Croquet competition is for high bisquer (high handicap) players who each receive a generous allowance of bisques (extra turns).

The matches were played in 2 blocks, each person playing 5 matches in all, with the 2 block winners, Paul Schofield and Rosemary Bradshaw playing each other in a final match on Sunday afternoon.

Rosemary got off to a good start using most of her bisques to gain a substantial lead, however Paul then really entered the game playing several very steady breaks, only breaking down a few minutes before time was called, allowing Rosemary to win the trophy, plus-2 on time.

Margaret Read presented the trophy which she and her husband, Stephen, donated to the club last year.

Final Score:  Rosemary Bradshaw 15, Paul Schofield 13 (on time)
