GC High Bisquers Doubles Competition

[20th July 2018, Chester-le-Street.]

Six pairs entered the 2018 event, again hosted by Croquet Durham at Chester-le-Street, with couples from Bamburgh, Belsay, Durham, and Tyneside.

Played as a single all-play-all block of five matches (handicapped and restricted to 45 minutes), the three matches before lunch avoided the rain which started early in the fourth set of games, although not hard enough to inconvenience play.

Overall there were many close matches, which was reflected in the final standings with two pairs who won 3 matches behind two others who also won 3 but drew another.

In the end, after calculating hoop differences, Libby & George Cansino (+8) won, closely followed by Susan Martin & Derek Barron (+4).

Many thanks to Nigel & Susan Martin for organising and running the event.
