Twenty-two members of Sidmouth Croquet Club gathered to play in a fun, one-ball tournament to raise funds for Alzheimers research on the middle Wednesday of April, writes Chris Donovan.
The Croquet Association select a different charity each year and clubs around the country run a one-day fun event.
A dull start preceded a beautiful, sunny afternoon, which raised the players' spirits, coping with four games being played on one lawn simultaneously; also known as 'organised chaos'. Players wore 'something blue', the charity's colour, and John Coombes won the day.
He now has the opportunity to play in an 'All England' final tournament at Surbiton in May.
