Yvonne Bagnall took out the Gloucester Croquet Club's Golf Croquet Handicap Singles title 2020 in a well fought match against Lyn Stewart.

The event competition was held on Friday October 30 with the finals following on Saturday October 31.

The competition was a 13-point game with the first to seven hoops being declared the winner.

It was a knock-out style match with players out of the competition after sustaining two losses. The club had 10 players contest the event.

The results were: Iris Usback 7-6, 7-6, 7-2; Paul Cusack 6-7, 7-4, 7-4, 3-7; Lyn Stewart 7-2, 7-2, 7-6; Bev Fagan 2-7, 6-2, 7-1; Alec Bruce 7-2, 2-7, 5-7; Carol Newitt 2-7, 2-6; Mae Bobsien 7-6, 2-7, 1-7; Jenni Sun 6-7, 4-7; Yvonne Bagnall 7-6, 6-7, 7-5, 7-3 and Ashleigh Hickman 6-7, 4-7.

First up on Saturday were the semi finals where Iris played Yvonne with a final of 6-7, followed by Yvonne playing Bev with a final of 6-4.

Next up was the grand final match with Yvonne playing Lyn finishing up 7-1.

As it was a very hot day and Yvonne had already played four games, Lyn forfeited the right to challenge Yvonne to another game.

This declared Yvonne as our winner. Congratulations Yvonne.

Thank you Lyn for your consideration.

Thank you also to Al Minis, Brenda Pennicuik, Sue Crellin and Elaine Leech for being our referees on the day.

There were some very close and entertaining games played with everyone enjoying the two days.

Our next competition is the Singles Games on Thursday November 12 and Friday November 13.

Until next time, enjoy the game and fellowship.
