On Saturday 17 June, the Chester Golf Handicap team of Maureen Ivens (captain), Mel Hagan, Liz Subramanian and Brian Hayes travelled to Culcheth for a rearranged match in the North West golf croquet league. The match was played in glorious sunshine, in complete contrast to the rain in the previous week that had led to the cancellation. After some very close games, 4 of which went to the golden hoop, Culcheth won 11 – 7. Brian Hayes was playing in his first match for Chester and won 2 of his games, narrowly losing the other 2.
A Chester team of Paul Watson, Paul Taylor, Robin Tasker and John Dawson played Fylde on difficult lawns baked hard by the sweltering weather on Wednesday in the NW AC handicap league. In the morning Chester won the doubles and both singles and were fortunate to achieve a clean sweep by winning all the afternoon singles to win 7 – 0.
