SCA v CAI Women’s GC match

The Balgreen Club in Edinburgh hosted the first ever GC match between Scottish and Irish women croquet players. The Irish team have some experience of playing Spain in the last few years, but it was a first outing for the Scottish team. Rosemary Saunders Robertson, the Scottish captain and star player fell victim to covid just before the match and could not take part, seriously depleting the SCA firepower.   This resulted in a fairly easy win for the CAI players winning 57 of the 76 games played.
