Each year a group of Medics who met at The London Hospital, come on a Golf Tour of South Devon. As part of their tour they play a friendly Golf Croquet Match against Sidmouth Croquet Club
They have been coming for at least 15 years but only play the one croquet match in the year. All things considered they have picked up the tactics and become quite proficient croquet players and are certainly no ‘push over’.
Four rounds of doubles were played with some players taking a sip of Vodka refreshment between each round and so the match was played in a jovial spirit. This year Sidmouth just won 9 -7, with Geoff Odell and Margaret Colman being the best doubles partnership winning all 4 of their games played. The Medics have promised to come back next year and win.
In the afternoon they went on to play real golf at East Devon Golf Course, Budleigh Salterton.
