Actuaries’ croquet tournament

The 7th annual actuaries’ association croquet tournament took place on Sunday 11 September at Surbiton Croquet Club. Short notice led to a reduced field compared with previous years. Current champion Chris Coote was joined by John Taylor, Tim Wilkins, and newcomer Simon Brickman. To allow for the wide range of abilities and give everyone a fair chance, the tournament was played using a handicapping system. However, Chris was on good form, winning all his games to take the title for the third time and retain the Generali Salver.

If you are interested in future croquet tournaments then please email Chris at chris@cootefamily.co.uk. All standards are catered for, from complete beginners to regular players. The 2006 tournament is expected to be in May or June next year.
