Croquet Alternate Shot Doubles mini tournament Sunday 20th September
Tony Carey, Alan Looney, Joe and Anne-Marie McGowan, Sylvia Briggs, Karen Davidson Perrins, Simon Williams, Sheila Glennane, Ann Woufle-Flannagan, Daniel Bennet, Myles Mc Weeney, Bill Hadden
Personal Comment : There was some confusion as to whether this was a Carrickmines or CAI event so we should better plan this event next year ensuring that two open events do not occur on successive weekends .
We had a good day with the weather contrary to the forecast staying dry until 3 PM , however it then took its revenge so full credit and thanks to the determined and committed players who persevered to finish out the tournament. Also thanks for playing the games in a good sporting spirit with the emphasis on teaching and learning of strokes and strategy.
We had 6 pairings each having three 14 point 1.5 hr. matches, with results as follow;
Bill & Anne Vs Daniel & Tony 5 – 7
Joe & Myles Vs Simon & Sheila 10 - 14
Alan & Karen Vs Ann & Sylvia 3 – 11
Bill & Anne Vs Alan & Karen 13 – 3
Joe & Myles Vs Ann & Sylvia 13 – 6
Daniel & Tony Vs Simon & Sheila 5 - 4
Bill & Anne Vs Ann & Sylvia 6 – 8
Alan & Karen Vs Simon & Sheila 8 – 3
Joe & Myles Vs Tony & Daniel 14 – 0
I am pleased to say everyone enjoyed at least one win , but three pairings enjoyed two wins, with the clear overall winner on net hoops Joe & Myles on + 17 from Ann & Sylvia on +3
Congratulations to Joe & Myles.
