Season Long GC Doubles Final

The final of this event was held on the 5th October with conditions ideal for croquet. Paul Bridgman and Linda Murrell played John Skuse and Pete Wilkinson in a 13 point game to decide who would take the honours. After 8 hoops it all appeared to be over as John and Pete led 6-2 thanks to some fine hoop running and clearances by Pete. However Paul and Linda had other ideas as 6-2 became 6-3 6-4 6-5 and, glory be 6-6, which goes to prove a game is never over till it’s over. John, with the first shot to the 13th, obtained a straight 6 foot hoop running position with his Blue which eventually proved decisive. A fine game of croquet and a pity that one side had to lose after such a great fight back.
