13-15 June 2008 Hunstanton Over 50s Tournament

An enjoyable three days of hard fought matches at the annual over 50s croquet tournament in fairly Sunny Hunny. Weather forecasts of doom and gloom were again ignored in the special micro-climate of Hunstanton with morning, afternoon and evening sessions alternating in bewildering fashion between chilling nor'easterly and sweltering heat.

Excellent food and drink as always with the entertaining Saturday night Chinese buffet extravaganza organised by Brian Saddington complimenting fine lunches and scrummy teas served at the club.

There is a hard core of regular attendees of this friendly event from clubs around East Anglia which this year was boosted by entries from Pendle in Lancashire and Surbiton in Surrey.

One of the visitors from Pendle, Robin Delves, led from the start with a string of wins through his audacious play. His pole position was briefly challenged by the wily Woolhouse and Tutt of Letchworth and by last year's winner, Patricia Duke-Cox, but it was the manager, Ian Storey, who finally claimed overall glory, completing a flawlessly administered three days with an equally perfect victory over Robin. As the Chairman so graciously put it - he can set the hoops and serve the food next year too.
