13/14 July  Southern Challenge Southwick (level) Team event 

Well this weekend Lodsworth played in the Southern challenge down at Southwick. This is a level tournament for B and C handicaps except they made a last minute change to allow 1 A player! Lodsworth fought hard for 5 wins and 2 losses finishing a very respectable 🥉 out of 8 teams. Compton won with a player off -1 and Rottingdean were second with a +1 player   
Team was Mike Wilson Elaine Wilson John West Peter Hill Jo Huffener and Richard Givan
Lawns were in fantastic condition as always so a great experience for everyone!

League Match Sussex County A     12 June 24

Lodsworth came out winners of the first league match of the season against Sussex A! We were playing advantage croquet and starting all our matches-1 or -2 but the team of Mike and Elaine Wilson John West and Peter Hill fought hard for every hoop and won the match 6-3. Onwards to the next match away to Rottingdean on Wednesday July 24th

Compton mini tournament Sat 8 June 2024

Lodsworth were invited to send a team to the Compton tournament where there were 5 other teams. Each round we played 1 doubles and 2 singles matches in level play!
After some closely fought games Lodsworth managed to come 2nd to one of the home teams so a great result!
The 5 lawns were immaculate and very very fast so it was a great experience for all of us. Thanks to John West Peter Hill Richard Givan Frank Hill and Monica Hill for joining me in this adventure

30th April 2024: Friendly match away at Chichester and Fishbourne 

Well we had fun today on one of the first sunny days for ages. However the results were not brilliant. Peter, Jo, Jean and myself travelled to Fishbourne and the overall score was 6-0 to Fishbourne. They turned out a strong team with handicaps from 2 to a debatable 12 🙄.  The lawns were slow, heavy and uneven. Jean needed to use golf style to get the length of the lawn but never lost her sense of humour. 

Despite the overall result lots of the games were close fought. 

Tea was good 😀.

Chichester & Fishbourne 15 August 2023

Mike and Elaine, Alistair Proctor and Hugh Brown won a very tight match by 5 games to 4, with the final game being won at the 13th hoop! This means that we go into our last League match against Sussex County on August 31st with a very good chance of being undefeated, a feat we have not achieved before. That's Alistair demonstrating his jump shot!
 

8th August Preston League

A wet, miserable day but Team Lodsworth won 6-3!  Congratulations to Tim Johnson, Hugh Brown, Elaine and Mike Wilson.

30th July 2023  SECF GC Teams 

The event was the South East Croquet Federations annual Team competion at Southwick, which this year was was billed as a Carnival (possibly to celebrate 20 years of the competition) so all the Teams were asked to dress up!  We took a team of five, Elaine, Mike, Richard, Tim and myself and Elaine had the idea of  going as The Lodsworth Morris Dancers. She brilliantly provided all the ribbons flowers and bells to kit us out. Although most other teams seemed to think we should have won (as did we!), we were pipped at the post by the Clan of Godhelm from Guildford and Godalming who had rather splendid Viking Helmets (but nothing else). In the competition itself we did not win despite the best efforts of Mike and Elaine ( both winning all their matches ) and Richard (who won 2 and drew one). It was all very enjoyable despite the rather drizzly and cold weather. Full results will be published later.
