York Smarties and Debbie James emerge winners at YCF Short Croquet Tournament

The York lawns welcomed players from newly formed Driffield CC to the YCF SC Tournament 2022 on 17th July 2022.

They joined entrants from York CC, Huddersfield, Ryedale and Beverley & East Riding to make a field of 16. Overcast skies and a smattering of rain greeted our arrival, but soon the forecast sun and extreme heat materialised as we played 4 rounds of 14 point short croquet.

York Smarties and BERCC contested the final, with Smarties emerging winners with 3 wins from 4 games in the final round. Congratulations to Wendy Robertson, the young emerging talent of York, Cathie Dance, Sue Longcroft and James Pitt. Mo Atkinson of Driffield and Wendy were runners-up for the Armada plate, with Debbie James of BERCC taking home the silverware.
