Tue 7 Jun 2011 - SWF Intermediate League            (played at Wellington CC)

Wellington v Cornwall

On Tuesday June 7th Cornwall Croquet Club sent a Team of 3 players, Tony Jennings, Des Honey & Stephen Read, to Wellington CC to play an SWF Intermediate League Match.

Wellington CC has only 1 full sized somewhat challenging lawn, at the Oake Manor Golf Club next to Oake Church ( a very picturesque setting), which meant that some of the singles games had to be played in a shortened format ( 18 point instead of 26 point games).

The morning play was a single & doubles game, The Cornwall Team found Wellington, with local knowledge, too strong & lost both games.

This left the afternoon play of 3 singles played to the 18 point format. Cornwall having learnt the idiosyncrasies of the lawn found their form & won all 3 games decisively.

This was followed by a very nice tea under a magnificent Oak tree next to their Pavilion.

Final Score:  Wellington 2    Cornwall 3
