Omied Hallam and Elizabeth Shelton won the 2021 “Hallam Doubles” tournament.

On the wet weekend of  6th and 7th of August, 10 doubles pairings of club members took part in the 2021 Hallam Doubles, named in memory of the late Brian Hallam. 

The cricketers at Trent Bridge abandoned their test match due to rain, but Nottingham’s croquet stalwarts are made of sterner stuff, and continued in spite of conditions, sometimes playing under an umbrella held by their doubles partner. After four rounds of challenging play, the final turned out to involve three Hallams; Brian's sons Sanaa partnering his wife Philipine, and Omied partnering Elizabeth Shelton. 

Omied and Elizabeth eventually prevailed in a tight and exciting (if wet) final.
