Croquet club

The CERN Croquet season started Saturday 7 May with the annual opening tournament. A total of 14 very happy players in the spring sunshine.

It was a  lovely day in all senses - friendly competition, a lot of laughter and catching up with one another. Players are divided into PROs (low-handicap) and AMs (high-handicap), all matches are played as doubles. The pairings are changed during the day and the individual points go towards determining the winner.

Congratulations to Ian Sexton for winning the Pros and Beryl Allardyce who won the Ams. Many of the games were very close and Ian seemed to have some good challenges in his block!

Overall results:

  • 1st - Ian
  • 2nd - Brian
  • 3rd - Angelina
  • 4th - Jean


  • 1st - Beryl
  • 2nd - Frank
  • 3rd - Peter (+Margaret)
  • 4th - Roberta (+Jenny)

Special thanks to the manager Danny Davids for making this tournament such a smooth and well run affair.
