High Bisque Tournament Report - 06/06/2009 @ 11:40 by Frances_Low

The 2009 High Bisque tournament run by the Croquet Academy at Southwick in June was blessed with fine, sunny weather. The lawns were fast and true and there was some interesting croquet. Sadly, there were only 12 entrants with handicaps ranging from 14 to 24. The games were full bisque to a base of 10, adapted for 18 point games.

The event was won by Douglas Cossey from Ramsgate who won all his 6 games, most of them emphatically.

His roqueting and hooping were of a high standard but he still needs to acquire more tactical acumen. I am sure he will continue to improve. His handicap went down from 18 to 16 as a result of his winning the salver.

There were 3 players on 4 wins - Wendy Spencer-Smith,who was runner up and had her handicap go down to 14, Ron Farr, and Brian Barnard who also had a handicap reduction from 24 to 22.

I hope everyone enjoyed the event and learned something from it! Next year, we plan to reduce it to 2 days, midweek, with 5 games needing to be played. Please pass the word around that it is an enjoyable and relaxing introduction to, or continuation of, tournament play.

No pressure!

Many thanks to the Southwick Club for hosting the event and for the catering and bar service.

The High Bisque tournament was the 21st one attended by Miriam Reader from Tunbridge Wells. What a stalwart she has been! She is as sprightly and canny as ever and, of course, a really dapper and lovely lady. Gene Mears presented her with a momento of this occasion - good luck for the next 21 years Miriam!
