On Wednesday 10th July, 12 contestants from the North West region took part in the Millennium Golf Handicap Tournament hosted by Chester Croquet Club.
We welcomed competitors from Crake in the north of the region to Llanfairfechan in the south.
Two groups of 6 players played a round robin, with the winners of each group playing for first place and the runner’s up in each group playing for third place.
In a closely fought final Sam Seal from Llanfairfechan beat Roger Edwards from Craig y Don 6-4.
The third place went to David Leach from Bury who defeated Brian Hayes from Chester 7-6 at the golden hoop.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to an excellent day – from the ground staff in Westminster Park who cut the grass at the crack of dawn, to the tea makers.
We were blessed with perfect weather, the lawns looked great and we all remembered why we love croquet!
