GC NSW Men's Singles Championship, 23rd - 24th February 2019

This event was held on 29-31 March 2019. Due to a record number of entries it was necessary to use two venues. We thank Chatswood CC for offering two of their courts at short notice. The event was highly successful largely due to the careful planning and preparation of David Stanton, which made the job of Tournament Manager very easy.

It was encouraging to welcome new faces, including Greg Porter from Ballina and Heath Jackson from Hyde Park, SA.

The competition began with 2 Round Robins, one at Tempe, the other at Chatswood. The top 4 from each block then played in the main (X) knockout to determine positions 1-8.

The rest of the field played in the Y knockout or the Plate.

All games except the Plate were untimed. A proviso was made to enable a 15min time limit if a game was getting bogged down, but this was not needed in this event. Matches were self-refereed.

Play was of an excellent standard and the camaraderie between players off the court was a pleasure to see.

Congratulations to the winner, David Hanbidge and the runner up Peter Freer.

Positions 3-8 were David Woods, Richard Christian, Peter Landrebe, Peter Montague, Jamie Gumbrell and Ralph Richardson.

Rob Elliott (Chatswood) won the Y event and Gareth Denyer won the Plate.

GC Selectors 2nd 8, 18th to 20th May 2019

Cheltenham Croquet Club had the pleasure of hosting the NSW GC Selector’s Second Eight tournament during perfect Sydney weather surrounded by lovely gardens of changing autumn colours.

The tournament went for three days with Saturday being the busiest, having three sessions to conquer, however not all competitors were able to complete their third session due to a couple of the games still being played at 1hr and 15 minutes when instruction was given that play would finish in another 15 minutes. The last session of the first day was then to be completed on the second and if needed third day. One game of the third session had to be stopped halfway through due to darkness and failure to adequately see the hoops. The ball positions were marked by measurement, photo and chalk and the game was completed on Sunday after the two sessions for Sunday were complete.

The third day saw all games completed with Pamela Barnwell undefeated and Mary Hughes attaining runner-up position.

A couple of competitors remarked on the number of games to be played and by the end of the last session fatigue was beginning to show in some players.

David Capple from Cheltenham, a last-minute inclusion, enjoyed the experience and managed to win one match.

The lawns were in pristine condition with thanks for the hard work of our groundsmen and the players were very complimentary re same.

It was good to have the support of an extra referee (Richard Hughes) on the day and Cheltenham was able to provide members to score the hoops for each game along with two spouses so no mistakes could be made or disagreements re hoops.
