Following his success in reaching the semi-finals of the U21 championship, Euan Burridge went on to win the plate at the adult event, held at Southwick and other venues in the south-east. Richard Bilton reached the last 8 of the main event and won the play-off for 5th place. Congratulations to them both.
The club put on a magnificant effort to host the Under-21 Golf Croquet World Championship, which was won by Edmund Fordyce, representing New Zealand, coming back from 2-0 down in a thrilling best of five final against the England player James Galpin. Yasser Sayed (Egypt) and Euan Burridge (England, and a member of the club) took the bronze medals. NZ and England players shared the consolation events: the Shield was won by Nathan Bullen, the Bowl by Chris Spittal and the Plate by Callum Johnson.
Videos of the play, which were streamed live, are available on the CroquetEngland YouTube site.
Many thanks to all the club members, too numerous to name, who helped make the event such a success for the players and their supporters. We hope that they will take away happy memories of Nottingham and return at some time in the future.
