Gary Bennett (Watford Cassio) beat Clive Goode (Nottingham) in the final of the B Level knockout. Gary won 26-2 & 26tp-13 in the best of three. For the second time in a week, ducks were seen paddling on lawn one prior to a delayed start of play. Once underway everyone enjoyed drying conditions and sunny weather for the event. With three triple peels recorded on Saturday, players found the lawns to their liking. It was good to welcome both old friends and newcomers to the popular B Level. Many thanks to Richard and Michelle White for their ever popular managerial and catering expertize.
After clearing the ducks off the croquet lawn lakes, Nottingham won their first round match 5 - 2 against Newport.
